The Montgomery County Council has put forth a bill that would give all Montgomery Council workers a minimum wage of $15 an hour.
Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett said that he would veto the bill saying that working toward the $15 minimum wage is something the County should work towards over an appropriate timeframe rather than take a giant step of a just making $15 minimum wage the law.
Montgomery County Executive Isiah “Ike” Leggett says he will veto the $15-an-hour minimum wage measure passed by the county council last week.
The county council’s measure would have raised the current minimum wage of $10.75 to $11.50 later this year. It would rise again to $12.50 next year; to $13.75 in 2019 and finally to $15 in 2020.
