At the other end of the spectrum on the minimum wage debate, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan this week vetoed a minimum wage bill increasing the wage in Maryland to $15/hour by 2025 and by July, 2026 for smaller businesses with 14 or fewer employees. Notwithstanding the Governor’s veto, the legislature quickly – in fact, within one day of receiving the Governor’s veto message, overrode it by wide margins and enacted the law increasing the state’s current minimum of $10.10/hour. Under the law, the minimum will increase to $11 in January and then by $.75 each year until 2025 when it will jump the final $1 to $15. Smaller businesses will have until July, 2026 to follow suit. Maryland is now the sixth state to have adopted the $15 per hour minimum.
