Pursuant to the Las Cruces Municipal Code (LCMC), the minimum wage will increase, effective January 1, 2024. 

In 2014, the City enacted ordinance 2726 which established a minimum wage, tipped wage, and annual increases, for Las Cruces. From 2015-2019, each year the amount of the minimum wage was a set number but for 2020 and beyond, both the minimum wage and tipped wage increases were tied to the CPI index, as per the ordinance.  


YearMinimum WageTipped Wage*
2020$10.25*$4.10
2021$10.50$4.16
2022$11.50$4.40
2023$12.00$4.78
2024$12.36*$4.95
*Amount based on the City of Las Cruces Ordinance

In 2024, the State minimum wage is scheduled to remain at $12. The City however, will adopt the minimum wage based on the City ordinance because it is higher than the State number. 


City Ordinance requires the new minimum wage amount be posted on October 15 of the year prior to the adoption of the new wage.
