If your business has employees in Maryland, get ready to start issuing pay raises. The Maryland General Assembly is currently considering a bill that would steadily increase the state’s minimum wage by approximately 50% in four years. Maryland’s current minimum wage is $10.10 per hour, $2.85 higher than the federal minimum established by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Under the new proposal, the statewide minimum wage would increase to $11 per hour later this year, then by $1 each subsequent year until reaching $15 per hour in 2023.
