The road to a $15/per hour minimum wage in Montgomery County starts on July 1, 2018. While employers have several more years before they must pay employees $15/per hour as I wrote in a recent blog post, Minimum Wage Increases are Coming to Montgomery County, Maryland, the gradual journey towards $15/per hour begins soon. On July 1st of this year, minimum wage in Montgomery County will rise to:
- $12.25, for employers with 51 or more employees
- $12.00, for employers with 50 or fewer employees
For those employer who are looking ahead, this rate will increase each July 1st on its way to $15/per hour. For July 1, 2019, minimum wages in Montgomery County will increase to:
- $13.00, for employers with 51 or more employees
- $12.50, for employers with 50 or fewer employees
Now is the time for business to prepare for these increases.
