The state's Department of Workforce Solutions says it will make payments by 1:00 today to unemployed New Mexicans who didn't get paid after a "batch payment failure" was discovered Sunday night.
A two-paragraph news release from the Department doesn't shed light on what the problem was or how many people were affected. This is the second time in recent days the department has made late payments.
"We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused,” Deputy Secretary Ken Ortiz said in a statement. "We realize our customers rely on receiving their payments in a timely manner."
And, it's not the first time the system recently has faced other problems.
