This petition had 678 supporters


In November the voters of Albuquerque overwhelming voted (67% in favor) to raise the minimum wage in Albuquerque to $8.50/hr and to $3.83/hr for tipped employees. Not only does the Owner of the Route 66 Malt Shop on Central Ave , Eric Szeman, refuses to pay his employees the new minimum, the City of Albuquerque stated that "‘The city is not responsible for enforcing this because it is a “self help” ordinance.” An employee could potentially file a lawsuit against his or her employer". http://www.kob.com/article/stories/s2935132.shtml) The City of Albuquerque should enforce the the ordinances on the books, tell the Mayor to enforce the ordinances of the City of Albuquerque.
