The minimum wage increase went into effect in Montgomery County on July 1. The number of employees employed by the business will determine the amount of the increase.
The County’s minimum wage will rise to $13 for employers with 51 or more employees and $12.50 for employers with 50 or fewer employees. Employees age 18 and under, who work fewer than 20 hours per week, are exempt from this rate.
Signed into legislation on Nov. 17, 2017, Bill 28-17 raises the minimum wage incrementally, each July 1, until it reaches $15 per hour in 2022.
