The Fight for Fifteen has moved one step closer to passing the Maryland State Legislature and becoming law. On Wednesday, the State Senate approved a bill that would gradually increase the states minimum wage from $10.10 to $15.00 per hour.
Then, the Senate voted 32-15 Thursday to raise Maryland’s minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2025.
Both the House and Senate made significant changes to the bills. The House delayed full implementation from 2023 to 2025. It also exempted some workers. The Senate version gives companies with fewer than 15 employees until 2028 to raise the minimum wage.
