$15 Minimum Wage Passed as Veto Overridden

Maryland will phase toward a $15 minimum wage, after the General Assembly voted to override the Governor’s veto.

From coverage in The Hill:

Maryland will become the sixth state to implement a $15 minimum wage after its Democratic-controlled legislature overrode Gov. Larry Hogan’s (R) veto Thursday.

The current minimum wage in Maryland is $10.10. Under the new law, it will reach $15 an hour by 2025 through a series of staggered increases, the Associated Press reports, starting next year when it will increase to $11 an hour. Businesses with less than 14 employees will have an extra year to raise wages to $15.

The bill history on HB 166 is available online, including the final override votes from the House and Senate.
