Why is Minimum Wage the Only Issue in the New Mexico Senate Race?

 Posted:  October 25, 2014

The linked article below includes a letter to the editor of the Albuquerque Journal in which a citizen discusses the charges and counter charges between the two men running for Senate this year – Allen Weh and Tom Udall. His topic will probably consume a lot of time at the one debate we will be privy to see between the two candidates.

Why is this the over-riding issue of the campaign? Why does Tom Udall make this his rally cry? Why do we have to go over and over and over again the two sides of this issue? Why does Allen Weh even waste time and resources to talk about it?

Shouldn’t the issue be that we don’t have many jobs in New Mexico?

Shouldn’t the issue be that we don’t have businesses starting up in New Mexico?

Shouldn’t the issue be that illegals from all over the world are working New Mexico jobs for less because they will?

Shouldn’t the issue be that New Mexico has a dragging private sector and a bloated government sector?

Shouldn’t the issue be that nothing is being done about the inflation that wipes out the benefits of a minimum wage raise in a matter of weeks?

Shouldn’t the issue be that the two booming places in New Mexico are in Farmington and Hobbs in the oil patch?

There are all kinds of issues that could be talked about but aren’t.

This election is just all style and no substance.
