Montgomery Co. lawmaker pushes again for $15 minimum wage

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.

That people that want that minimum wage are NOT smart enough to be paid that much for what they already do!

And what about the ones who worked hard got an education, worked hard and earned the better wages. It's a slap in the face to hard workers because others basically want a hand out.

These idiots can't see what has happened to other cities that have done this?
What fools!

What about people who can write the English language correctly?
Should they be paid $15 per hour?
Just wondering.

If the minimum wage was changed to $15 an hour, I could not afford 2 of my 10 employees.I would be forced to let them go.

Uh Marc, evidently you have NOT listened! If passed you will reap what you have sown and will see the consequences.

Kiosk Nation, bring it on!
