The Paid Family Medical Leave Act will be considered in one of the bills coming up in the 2023 Legislative Session. This act forces employees and employers to pay out of pocket into a fund managed by Workforce Solutions, and it isn’t good for New Mexicans!
The PFMLA could harm our already fragile businesses and the workers they employ. This will impact every NM employee and all businesses with over five employees.
Many New Mexicans are already dealing with the financial strain of inflation, and for many families, an additional .5% of ALL employee wages would go into this state-managed fund. Employers would pay another .4% of all wages paid.
We are asking all New Mexico legislators and the Governor to NOT PASS the Paid Family Medical Leave Act. Complete the form to sign the petition and help save New Mexicans their hard earned wages!
The PFMLA Petition you are signing:
I am asking you to vote NO on the Paid Family and Medical Leave Act during the 2023 legislative session. Requiring both employees and employers to pay out of pocket into a fund over which they have no control isn’t good for New Mexico.
Many businesses are just one disaster away from closing down – and increasing their taxes again could be devastating for them and their employees! In addition, inflation is creating a strain on everyone and this is just one more cost New Mexicans cannot afford. The PFMLA would take an additional .5% of all employee’s wages and employers would pay an additional .4% of all wages paid.
This will impact every NM employee and all businesses with over five employees. Please DO NOT PASS the Paid Family Medical Leave Act!
