I refuse to believe that amount would harm an employer. It is the price of doing business. Employees have a right to a true living wage, and anything less than the $15 mark now is morally indefensible.
The governor and those who still can’t warm to this idea should all volunteer to take a month to live on that wage and see how they then feel about it. It is long past time for Annapolis to do the right thing.
