Minimum wage workers in the State of New Mexico are ringing in the new year with a pay raise.

More than 150-thousand people are making the jump from five dollars and 15 cents an hour to six dollars and 50 cents.

Next year, they'll get another increase to seven-50 an hour.

That is actually above the Federal Minimum Wage which will be seven dollars and 25 cents by the summer of 2009.
