Maryland General Assembly Votes To Raise Minimum Wage To $15

March 20th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

The Maryland General Assembly voted to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour starting in 2025.

The bill passed in the House of Delegates with a 93 – 41 vote and in the Senate 32 – 13. The legislation now goes to Gov. Larry Hogan's desk. The House and Senate passed their versions of the legislation by veto-proof majorities.



The minimum wage in Maryland will raise to $15 an hour starting Jan. 1, 2025. Small businesses with 14 or fewer employees will be permitted to wait until July 1, 2026 to establish the full $15 wage.

    states and local governments should not be in the minimum wage business. Instead Trump did nothing to stop this chaos but he feuded with McCain to stupid Mueller

    Thank you states like Maryland who say screw employment and hello to unemployment. The next recession coming is the result of states having new impossible laws like $15 per hr. Also thanks trump for doing nothing to stop Mueller and throwing out your promises.
