Santa Fe minimum wage rising to $12.32 an hour March 1

As the Biden administration pushes for a federal minimum wage of $15 per hour, and with many cities and states across the nation already nearing or exceeding that rate, the city of Santa Fe and Santa Fe County will see base pay rise to $12.32 on March 1.

The 22-cent increase from the current hourly rate of $12.10 is based on the Consumer Price Index for the Western region and is required under “living wage” ordinances in the city and county.

The local governments are among 52 jurisdictions in the United States that have higher minimum wages than their states.

From 2004-12, the city of Santa Fe had the highest or second-highest minimum wage in the country after becoming the first U.S. city to enact a higher rate than the state’s wage. Since 2012, however, it has fallen behind.
