Coinciding with the New Mexico Film Festival and the International Worker’s Day celebration from April 28 – May 12016, the 2nd Annual Gracias Bus Tour will thank our state legislators, our statewide officials, and our federal delegation for standing strong with New Mexico workers.

The tour will start in Las Cruces, head to Truth or Consequences and Los Lunas, stop in Albuquerque in conjunction with the Labor Film Festival, and then culminate at a big International Workers Day event in Santa Fe.

This is going to be the biggest labor event in New Mexico so far this century!

Our stories

“I take my responsibilities really, really seriously. Gas leaks. Boiler malfunctions. Things like that. That’s something no one wants to think about, especially in schools. But that’s why I’m thankful that my knowledge, skill and training is there.”

I was working in Texas, a right to work state. While there, I was making $600 a week on salary for a 50-60 hour work week. I had no retirement, no insurance.

When I came home to New Mexico, I started working the same job at $18 an hour. That works out to approx $6,000 more a year. I received retirement and medical benefits for free with very low deductibles…
