HB295—Maryland Minimum Wage Act of 2014
Raises the minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $10.10
Why this funding is important: Advocates for Children and Youth supports the minimum wage increase. However, the final outcome was poor as the raise was not immediate as it will go into effect by 2018. Also, the raise does not take inflation into account.
Update: PASSED.
