With so many bad public policies being proposed in Santa Fe and Albuquerque’s City Council, even the most informed voters may be confused as to what is happening or being planned. With mandatory paid sick leave that situation is amplified because the City Council is now considering a 3rd version of sick leave.

To summarize, the latest proposal closely resembles the one defeated by voters in 2017. That is no surprise since Councilor Pat Davis has also been a paid activist with Progress Now NM which was involved in pushing the original sick leave ballot measure. Also, with “progressives” in full control of Albuquerque City Council and the Mayor’s office they see little opposition to their plans.
