Maryland Heading for $15 Min. Wage by 2025

The March 18 Senate vote was 32-15 on party lines. The House of Delegates voted for it two weeks before, 96-44. Maryland would thus join what is now a large number of states, plus major cities like New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, the Twin Cities and San Francisco… People’s World
