    BernCo Passes Minimum Wage Increase

    10/24/2018

    The Bernalillo County Commission approved the minimum wage cost of living increase from $8.85 to $9.05 per hour. This wage increase affects employees who work within the unincorporated area of Bernalillo County, outside of the city limits.

    The increase will take effect on Jan. 1, 2019.

    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. Initially, the county ordinance implemented two increases of .50-cent increments.

    • In July 2013, the minimum wage increased from $7.50 to $8.00
    • In January 2014, the minimum wage was increased from $8.00 to $8.50
    • In January 2015, the minimum wage had a cost of living adjustment and was increased to $8.65
    • In January 2017, the minimum wage had a cost of living adjustment and was increased to $8.70
    • In January 2018, the minimum wage had a cost of living adjustment and was increased to $8.85
    • In January 2019, the minimum wage will have a cost of living adjustment and will be increased to $9.05

    On an annual basis, the ordinance requires that the County Commission vote on whether to implement a cost of living increase that becomes effective on Jan. 1 of the successive year. The 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 2017 to August 2018 is $0.1947. The ordinance calls for the increase to be rounded to the nearest multiple of $0.05.

    Commissioners Steven Michael Quezada, Debbie O’Malley, Maggie Hart Stebbins, and Lonnie Talbert voted to approve. Commissioner James E. Smith was excused from the meeting.
