Living Wage - Maryland Style
They've done it. They've enacted a statewide "living wage" law for the state of Maryland. Of course, while they blow their collective trumpets, it doesn't apply to everyone. There are those exceptions again. See here for more details.
Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley has signed the nation's first statewide "living
wage" law, a measure that requires state contractors to pay workers $11.30 an
hour in Baltimore and other areas where it is more expensive to live and at
least $8.50 in the rest of the state.
Looks like city folk are worth a little more in Maryland.
Just an observation.
