Bill raising minimum wage of high school-aged workers passes legislature

Legislature

SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – A bill to eliminate the lower minimum wage for high schoolers is on the governor’s desk. Under Senate Bill 35, all high school-aged workers would make the state’s $10.50 an hour minimum wage instead of their current $8.50 an hour. Many argued it was unfair to pay kids less for the same work.
