Ask Your Senator to Oppose increasing the Minimum Wage!
The House version of the minimum
wage bill passed 89-46 Friday, March 7. The bill increases the minimum wage
over the next three years, capping it at $10.10 an hour. The House Economic
Matters Committee made a few revisions to Governor Martin O’Mally’s original bill: it delayed
the first increase by six month, eliminated indexing, and added a carved out exemption for seasonal amusement
parks. As passed by the House, the minimum wage will jump to $8.20 on
January 1, 2015, then $9.15 on January 1, 2016 and against to $10.10 on January
1, 2017.

The Senate Finance Committee and Senate Budget & Taxation Committee continue to consider the
legislation and may send it to the floor soon.
