Yesterday, Maryland lawmakers took an important step to help working families statewide get a higher minimum wage by passing a $15 minimum wage bill.
The measure raises wages for hundreds of thousands of workers across our state and helps create economic justice for Marylanders. Your advocacy and support helped us reach this milestone.
But our work isn't done.
The $15 minimum wage bill is now on Governor Larry Hogan's desk where he is likely to veto it. Thankfully, our advocacy ensured the bill passed with enough votes to override Hogan's veto.
