New County Minimum Wage Takes Effect Jan. 1, 2020

12/31/2019

As of Jan. 1, 2020, there is a new minimum wage for workers in Bernalillo County. This wage increase affects employees who work within the unincorporated area of Bernalillo County, outside of the city limits.

The Bernalillo County Commission approved the minimum wage cost of living increase on Oct. 15 from $9.05 to $9.20 per hour.

The Bernalillo County Minimum Wage Ordinance, which took effect July 1, 2013, addressed a lacking cost of living adjustment compared to other local minimum wage rates. On an annual basis, the ordinance requires that the County Commission vote on whether to implement a cost of living increase.

Any possible increased amount is calculated using a consumer price index formula published by the U.S. Department of Labor. The calculated cost of living increase for the 12-month period of September 2018 to August 2019 is $0.13575. The ordinance calls for the increase to be rounded to the nearest multiple of $0.05.
