Senate Bill 543--Fight for $15

Let's get a $15 minimum wage in Maryland.

We have a great chance to pass a $15 minimum wage in Maryland, but we need your support!  Senator Rich Madaleno (D-Montgomery County) submitted SB543 in January of this year.  It proposes a gradual increase in the state minimum wage to a value of $15 in July 2023, with the minimum wage indexed to inflation after that. 

But none of the Howard County Senators have signed on to cosponsor the bill.  Tell your State Senators that you support SB543, Fight For $15 legislation, and ask them to sign on as cosponsors to the legislation.  

You can find the email and phone numbers of your state Senators here.  

If you live in Howard County, here is contact information for your Senators:

Gail Bates (Rep D9)

(410) 841-3671, (301) 858-3671

Guy Guzzone (Dem D13)

Please sign this petition in support of the $15 minimum wage, and contact your Senators to ask them to cosponsor the bill.

    This bill just makes sense. This is a great step towards making sure that everyone can make a living wage from a honest day’s work.

    Nobody at my company gets raises ever. You have no idea how much I need this.

    In reality $15 dollars is barely a living wage. Setting this floor is the least we can do for Maryland’s workers. The ripple effects will be positive on so many levels.

    Fifteen dollars is not even a living wage. Surely, now that everybody on top has gotten their tax cuts, they can share this much with those who work for so little and often have to work two or three jobs just to meet basic needs.

    This is an important move given the federal shift of money to the rich.
