Urgent Action Needed - $10.10 Minimum Wage Voted out of House Committee, Heading for a Vote on the House Floor
The House Economic Matters Committee approved a minimum wage
bill late Monday evening, which will now go to the House floor for a vote. It’s
urgent that your contact your representative today and ask them to oppose the
minimum wage hike! This bill is expected to be heard on Wednesday March 5.
The bill, which Governor O’Malley has identified as his top
legislative priority of 2014, would raise the minimum wage to $8.20 an hour on
Jan. 1, 2015; to $9.15 an hour on Jan. 1, 2016; and $10.10 an hour on Jan. 1,
Thank you to everyone who has already taken action on this
issue, please continue to contact your legislators about this important issue,
and encourage friends and family to do the same.
We would also like to thank the eight
Delegates on the House Economic Matters Committee who supported small business and
voted against raising the minimum wage in a committee meeting on Monday, March
Please take a moment to thank them for their support.
