Around a dozen Deming, New Mexico firefighters hold rally for higher wages

DEMING, New Mexico - Nearly a dozen Deming firefighters held a rally Monday calling for higher wages.

The rally was held in front of their station on 309 S. Gold Avenue.

“They only make 50 cents more than I do an hour washing dishes,” said Deming resident Christina Hernandez.

Hernandez told ABC-7 that the firefighters are frustrated with their $12.00 an hour wage.

According to Hernandez, the firefighters asked for a raise months ago, but city administrators denied it.

ABC-7 has reached out to Mayor Benny Jasso and Administrator Aaron Sera, but neither has responded.

  1. The government needs to find the money. If they can give lazy people section 8, food stamps and Medicaid, they should be able to pay these firefighters more money.

  2. Your lack of knowledge about recipients of medicaid, section 8, and food stamps is astounding. It almost overtakes you lack of knowledge about immigration affairs and the attendant law.
