Increase in Minimum Wage Coming Soon for Maryland Workers

The recently concluded 2014 Maryland legislative session resulted in the passage of some important amendments to the Maryland Wage and Hour Law.  One such amendment is a long overdue increase in minimum wage.

At present, Maryland’s minimum wage rate is identical to the federal minimum wage, which is $7.25 per hour.  However, Maryland’s minimum wage will gradually increase as follows:

  • As of January 1, 2015, $8.00/hour;
  • As of July 1, 2014, $8.25/hour;
  • As of July 1, 2016, $8.75/hour;
  • As of July 1, 2017, $9.25/hour; and
  • As of July 1, 2018, $10.10/hour. 

Stay tuned for further updates as they become available.
