State Worker Pay in New Mexico

Posted: Updated:

New Mexico - Chances of a pay increase for state workers and educators are looking better.

A proposal in New Mexico for a one percent increase passed through committee yesterday and will head to the full house Wednesday.

Governor Susana Martinez said she was pleased the budget included money for some of her education initiatives.

She did state however, the bill still has a long journey ahead in the legislature.
