Caregivers Of Disabled Could Soon See Higher Wages In MD

Posted: Updated:

MARYLAND - While lawmakers contemplate raising Maryland's minimum wage, advocates for people with disabilities are taking the opportunity to make sure paid caregivers get higher wages as well.

A bill is on the table to give caregivers of the disabled an hourly rate 50 percent higher than the state's minimum wage. The state currently provides them with $9.82 an hour.

If the General Assembly approves both this bill and the minimum wage increase to $10.10, caregivers would get paid $15.15.
