Santa Fe County Commission Passes the Living Wage
The living wage is coming to Santa Fe County!
Moments ago the Santa Fe County Commission unanimously voted 5-0 to increase the county’s minimum wage to match the City of Santa Fe. The living wage in Santa Fe County will now be raised to $10.66, also tipped workers in Santa Fe County will be getting a raise to $6.40 an hour. Santa Fe County is the second in the state to recognize the need of tipped workers to also make a living wage.

Hard work deserves fair pay and we couldn’t be more proud of the countless volunteers, organizers, and advocates that brought the living wage to the County of Santa Fe!
