Minimum Wage

Raising the minimum wage is one of the best tools we have to lift incomes and grow our consumer-driven economy. But in the past 40 years, the federal minimum wage – stuck at $7.25 since 2009 – has lost 30 percent of its value.

I supported last year’s Council compromise, and I support efforts to enact a statewide $15 minimum wage in Maryland.
