Holiday season brings reminders of minimum wage realities

In our last post we discussed the issue of the federal and state minimum wages in Washington D.C., and Maryland.

Minimum wage to rise in D.C.

Following the actions of lawmakers in Prince George and Montgomery counties, local lawmakers on the Washington, D.C. city council have voted to raise the minimum wage well above the federally mandated $7.25. The measure to raise the minimum wage to $11.50 still must face a final vote and must be signed by the mayor before it becomes law. It is likely to be finalized early next year, despite statements by the mayor that he would prefer a smaller increase.
