Minimum Wage Workers in MD to Receive State-Mandated Pay Increase on New Year’s Day

December 30th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Beginning on Friday, Maryland's minimum wage will increase to $11.75 per hour for people who work for employers with 15 or more employees. The current $11/hour minimum wage for employers with 14 or fewer workers will increase to $11.60.

The minimum wage for tipped employees will stay at $3.63 per hour. That amount and tips combined must equal the state’s minimum wage.

In 2019, state lawmakers overrode Gov. Larry Hogan’s veto of a bill that will increase the state’s minimum wage to $15 by 2025.
