SANTA FE — A New Mexico House committee Friday voted to approve a revamped right-to-work bill that tacks on an increase in the minimum wage from $7.50 to $8 an hour.
After some heated exchanges in a six-hour session, the House Judiciary Committee voted 7-6 along party lines to approve the Republican-sponsored revised bill that prohibits requiring workers to join a union or to pay dues as a condition of employment.
The revised bill now moves to a vote of the full House of Representatives.
