UPDATE: Montgomery County Executive Leggett Vetoes $15 Minimum Wage Bill
As a follow-up to our Jan. 20 post, Montgomery County, Md., Passes $15 Minimum Wage Bill, County Executive Isiah Leggett vetoed the bill Jan. 23.
In a memorandum to County Council President Roger Berliner, Leggett stated his support of moving toward a $15 per hour minimum wage; however, “to fully agree with a bill, it should:
- Be based on an expeditious study on the direct and indirect financial impacts on private employers, non-profits and County government;
- Include an exemption for small business, the definition of which can be informed by the study;
- Include an exemption for youth workers; and,
- Provide for reaching $15/hour in 2022.”
