Maryland Minimum Wage is Up

Well, if you’re a burger flipper in Maryland, then life gets a lot better for you right about now. A Dollar an Hour better, if that can really be considered all that better to begin with. The Maryland Senate overrode Governor Ehrlich’s veto for the second time in the last seven days.

So, to recap, DC’s minimum wage is $7. Maryland’s is $6.15. Virginia is $5.15. Lesson to all? Minimum wage sucks least in DC.

    What happened to “We pay for-profit salaries,” Wayan? ;) Oh right, you were sauced when you said that…

    Maybe he just meant they pay OTHER people for-profit salaries. Or maybe it’s as simple as McD’s being for-profit :)
