Montgomery County Council Votes for $15 Minimum Wage

By:  Jessica B. Summers, Associate

SUMMARY: The Montgomery County Council has passed a bill that would increase the minimum wage in the County over the next few years and ultimately raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour for all businesses by 2022.  It remains unclear, however, whether the County Executive will sign the bill into law.  At this time, there is nothing for Montgomery County employers to do but wait and see.
