Maryland Senator Ben Cardin joins us to talk about the youth movement against gun violence, Russian sanctions, and more. D.C. Councilmember Mary Cheh shares her thoughts on relief for high water bills and news that D.C. Public Schools is taking over an all girls charter school.
A bill requiring a $15-an-hour minimum wage in Montgomery County was vetoed by County Executive Isiah Leggett earlier this week. While the executive’s “reluctant” veto of the bill ended the plan that the County Council passed in a 6-4 vote, Leggett presented the framework for an alternative minimum wage plan. His conditions for a minimum wage hike would ease the transition for business owners by providing more time and more exemptions. Will the councilmembers who supported the original plan go back to the drawing board? Kojo discusses the possibility for a minimum wage increase in one of the region’s wealthiest counties.
