WASHINGTON — A Montgomery County Council member is moving ahead with a revised proposal to boost hourly wages after a push for a $15 minimum wage failed earlier this year.
Councilmember Marc Elrich plans to introduce the new legislation on Tuesday.
“It’s not the same bill,” Elrich said. “We’ve listened to major concerns that people have.”
The Council passed Elrich’s first minimum wage bill in January, but it did not garner enough votes to override a subsequent veto from County Executive Ike Leggett.
