Minimum Wage Increase on July 1

The Montgomery County Government announced that the county’s minimum wage will increase starting this Wednesday, July 1.  The increase is dependent on the number of employees that each company has:

  • A small employer (10 or fewer employees) will be required to pay $13/hour
  • A mid-size employer (50 or fewer employees) will be required to pay $13.25/hour
  • A large employer (51 or more employees) will be required to pay $14/hour.

This is part of a yearly increase from a bill that was signed back in 2017– this bill states that an increase will occur every July 1 until minimum wage reaches $15 an hour in 2022.
