Governor O'Malley Praises Final Passage of Minimum Wage Increase

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Annapolis, MD

Governor O'Malley today released the following statement lauding the final passage of SB 331, legislation that increases the Maryland's minimum wage to $10.10 and gives hundred of thousands of Marylanders a raise:

"My central focus as Governor of Maryland has been to to strengthen and grow the ranks of our ever more diverse and upwardly mobile middle class. That's why we invested record amounts in our #1-ranked public schools, why we did more than any other state in the nation to hold down the cost of college, why we expanded the Earned Income Tax Credit, why we chose to invest more in putting people to work rebuilding our transportation infrastructure, and why we are the only state in the nation that's passed a living wage law.

"This year, we are building on this record of strengthening the middle class by raising Maryland's minimum wage to $10.10. We worked hard to bring people together and forge the consensus necessary to make this important progress possible. I commend the General Assembly for giving so many Maryland families the raise they deserve."
