New Mexico Passes Minimum Wage

A proposed minimum wage hike passes its latest hurdle. The senate approved a measure that would bump up the minimum wage to $6.50 next year and $7.50 in 2009.

New Mexico governor Bill Richardson is backing the measure.

It now goes to the house, where another version is currently under consideration.
