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.
