SANTA FE – New Mexico’s minimum wage will increase to $12 an hour by 2023 – and to $9 an hour next year – under legislation signed into law Monday by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham.
The increase will affect an estimated 110,000 workers – most of them women – and will mark the first statewide minimum wage hike in more than a decade, after several proposed wage adjustments were vetoed by Lujan Grisham’s predecessor, former Gov. Susana Martinez, a Republican.
