The New Mexico Business Coalition believes the extra unemployment benefits from the federal government is to blame.

“Many employees are happy to be home and happy to get paid to be there,” said Carla Sonntag, president and founder of the New Mexico Business Coalition.

The state is offering a back-to-work bonus, but Perez said New Mexicans aren’t really jumping at that opportunity.
