108 Berco, Janus, Jobs, Raises and Casitas

In the news of week Paul and Wally discuss:

  • Mandatory paid sick leave deferred and plastic ordinance adopted at Bernalillo County Commission.
  • The one-year anniversary of the Janus decision at the United States Supreme Court.
  • For the first time since 2013, New Mexico beat the nation in job growth, but other data shows NM’s cities are still trailing the region badly.
  • Seven percent raises for teacher and other licensed workers even bigger than those mandated by the state.
  • Some positive news from, of all places, Santa Fe City government! Modest deregulation of casita rentals.
  • Senator Martinez arrested on suspicion of DWI.
