    New Mexico is a ses pool of mediocre work force un skilled. What talent that is left are leaving in droves from doctors to skilled workers. Albuquerque needs to be cleaned up the drug dealers and gang bangers need to be rounded up. The mayor of this city should be fired. There are advertisements in schools trying to stop kids from talking heroin. Can you imagine heroine. What skilled worker in there right mind would raise there family here. Our roads are disgusting our infrastructure non existent. What do you expect. I have a multi million dollar business create jobs and put dollars into our economy . Guess what Iam leaving taking my skilled workers with me for a place where there is economic freedom. From a North American perspective we are dead last in economic freedom. So someone please tell me why should I or anyone stay here?
