Governor Signs Minimum Wage Law

Yesterday the Governor of Maryland signed the Maryland Minimum Wage Act of 2014 into law along with many other measures.  The Governor’s Office noted the bill as one of the Administration’s Middle Class Accomplishments.

As described in the press release,

For the last eight years, the O’Malley-Brown Administration’s North Star has been expanding and strengthening Maryland’s middle class. . . [This year] Governor O’Malley and Lt. Governor Brown brought people together, forged consensus, and raised Maryland’s minimum wage to $10.10. Hundreds of thousands of Maryland workers will receive a raise, injecting money into the economy and creating good-paying, family-supporting jobs.
