Baltimore City Council members relaunch campaign for $15 minimum wage

City Council President Bernard C. “Jack” Young is joining a coalition of council members pushing for a $15 hourly minimum wage in Baltimore.

Legislation is expected to be introduced at the council’s Monday evening meeting.

The bill would incrementally raise the city’s minimum wage to $15 by 2022. Small businesses with fewer than 50 employees would have until 2026 to increase their minimum wage to that level.
