Are you Prepared for the Minimum Wage Increase in Montgomery County?

By Scott A. Mirsky

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, 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.
