Don't miss your chance to join us for a Candidate Job Interview BASH, to find out where Albuquerque candidates stand on important issues.
The Albuquerque Journal recently published an OP-ED about Right-to-work written by Carla Sonntag, President of New Mexico Business Coalition. The article highlights the game changing ordinance in Sandoval County. The main point is, Right-to-work laws give workers the choice to pay union dues, instead of forcing them to do so. Read more HERE.
NMBC would also like to applaud Sandoval County Commission for taking the initiative to spearhead New Mexico in the right direction.

NMBC has always stood against government mandated wages because they are unnecessary and actually harm the people they are supposedly aimed to help. Why? They are unnecessary because free markets have increased minimum wage in many large retailers. For example, Target recently announced it would raise its minimum starting wage to $15/Hour.
What will the future hold for New Mexico manufacturing jobs? This is the same question The New Mexico Business Coalition is working to solve by bring certifications and training to New Mexico. This initiative will equip people with great jobs as well as help the manufacturing industry employ qualified workers.
It’s time to vote Albuquerque!
Torrance County is thinking outside the box on how to potentially make lemonade out of lemons.
With more state and federal criminals serving less time - or sometimes none at all - many detention centers are closing. Not only is this bad for society to have more criminals on the streets, but it is costing jobs and the flow of several revenue sources.
Local Right-to-Work Can Boost New Mexico Economies
Elected officials always look for ways to make their cities and counties more economically competitive. And businesses look for a variety of factors when deciding where to locate or open new facilities.
One of those factors is right-to-work.
New Mexico Business Coalition declares October as Manufacturing Month. We want to promote manufacturers during the month of October. NMBC is looking to partner with manufactures who would want to host a manufacturing event. Read more information HERE!
We understand that many do not have the time to plan a manufacturing event which is why we will do all the heavy lifting. Read on to see why manufacturers should host an event:
Mandated paid sick leave for all employees (full-time, part-time, temporary, and seasonal) with no exceptions for small businesses or non-profit organizations will be on the Albuquerque ballot October 3. If the proposed sick leave ordinance in Albuquerque passes, you can bet the same type law/ordinance will be coming to the city you live in. NMBC has joined with other businesses and groups as the Albuquerque Coalition for a Healthy Economy to oppose the ABQ ordinance. There are many reasons why voters in Albuquerque should reject this law and others around the state should take notice – learn more HERE.
