On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
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.
