Just outside DC, the Montgomery County Council’s Health and Human Services Committee voted Monday to delay implementation of a minimum wage increase from the current $11.50 to $15 an hour. In January, the Council approved legislation that raised the hourly minimum to $15 minimum by 2020 for most businesses and by 2022 for businesses with 25 or fewer employees. But that bill was vetoed by County Executive Isiah Leggett, who said that the timeline for implementation was too fast. Under the latest proposal, which was approved Monday, large businesses would have until 2022 to comply and small businesses would have until 2024. Further, the proposal amends the definition of small businesses to mean businesses with 50 or fewer employees. The proposed changes now go to the full Council.
