As reported in the Washington Post, Governor Martin O’Malley spoke yesterday during a program marking the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. Among his many topics, the Governor pointed to the importance of education and college preparedness. This past year, the General Assembly passed the College and Career Readiness and College Completion Act of 2013.
The Governor also spoke about the need to raise the minimum wage, calling for “action that creates jobs and raises the minimum wage for every mom and dad that’s willing to work hard and play by the rules.”
