Baltimore City Council to Hear Testimony on Living Wage Proposal

The Baltimore Sun reports that the Baltimore City Council is prepared to hear testimony today on a living wage proposal that will require large retailers to pay employees $10.59 per hour.

Under the measure, businesses that gross more than $10 million per year — or are part of a chain that does — would be required to pay employees the living wage that the city now demands of its contractors. Stores could reduce the amount by as much as $2 per hour if they provide health care or other benefits.
