Senate To Hold Hearing On Minimum Wage Bill

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Maryland Senate is scheduled to hold a hearing on a proposed minimum wage increase.
    
The Senate Finance Committee hearing is set for Monday, after a winter storm delayed the hearing last week.
    
The measure proposes raising the minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 by 2016.
    
Gov. Martin O'Malley is supporting the bill.
    
Supporters say it will help the economy by providing people with more money to spend. Opponents contend a minimum wage hike has negative ramifications for Maryland businesses, particularly ones that hire young people who are still in school.
