The Case for Raising Baltimore’s Minimum Wage to $15 by 2020

Advocates in the City of Baltimore have announced a new campaign to raise the City’s minimum wage to $15 by 2020. This campaign pushes forward Baltimore’s historical commitment to a local wage that meets its residents’ needs. It also follows a growing list of cities and counties that are pushing for a $15 minimum wage—a wage high enough to allow workers to meet actual living costs and to begin to reverse the tilt in the City’s economy towards low-paying jobs.
