Employers are required by state and federal law to post at their workplaces certain information concerning the rights of employees. The required posters, including federal posters, are available free of charge from New Mexico state agencies; or you can print them yourself from online files, using ordinary office printers and standard size paper (see links below). Employers should never have to pay a commercial service for posters.
New Mexico state minimum wage is $7.50 per hour effective January 1, 2009. The federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour effective July 24, 2009. More information can be read at Minimum Wages Information.

*Attention Employers: The Minimum Wage Act summaries serve as a new posting option for your workplace. You may post the one page summary or you may keep the full version of the Minimum Wage Act posted if you do not wish to replace it. Either one of these postings will suffice to meet your requirement.
