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.
