Las Cruces' Minimum Wage increased to $12 an hour on Jan. 1, 2023. The minimum hourly wage for tipped employees now is $4.78 an hour.

The city’s minimum wage follows the state of New Mexico’s minimum wage, which increases to $12 an hour. The new minimum wage for tipped employees will be an increase of 18 cents an hour from 2022.

A tipped employee is an employee who customarily and regularly receives more than $30 a week in tips. Only tips actually retained and reported as income to Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) purposes by an employee shall be considered tips.

During a Special Meeting in September 2020, the Las Cruces City Council accepted the state’s graduated minimum wage increases. However, the Council opted to retain the City’s own ordinance regarding tipped wages.

Information about Las Cruces’ 2023 minimum wage is available online at this link.
