    Hearing on State Fight For $15 Bill

    A bill has been introduced in the Maryland General Assembly to raise the state minimum wage to $15/hr.15937049_10154693674239473_4565855318925489397_o.jpg

    If passed, this will be a huge victory for working families in our state where there is not a single county in which working families can be self-sufficient on less than $15. 

    The legislation as introduced would:

    • Raise wages to $15/hr by 2022 for most workers
    • Index the minimum wage to inflation to prevent loss in buying power
    • Eliminate the subminimum wage and unfair pay practices for tipped workers

    Help us pack the hearing room in solidarity with working families across Maryland and demand fair wages for all.

    RSVP below to attend.

    The hearing will be held in Room 230 of the House Office Building
