Economic Equity

On the agenda:

The Fight for $15 Minimum Wage in MoCo: County Executive Ike Leggett and four opponents on the Council (Rice, Berliner, Floreen, Katz) defeated the bill that we supported. They seek a study, further amendments, and say they will consider a different minimum wage bill in July. TPM continues to work with our coalition partners and elected leaders to build the movement for an adequate minimum wage in MoCo.

Other Economic Equity team members are working on research, fair work scheduling policies, and local government economic equity impact policies.  We will meet again as soon as these subgroups are ready to report on progress.
