Some council members in Howard County are introducing legislation Monday night to raise the minimum wage to make it the highest in the state. ... It’s a move that council members said would affect 40,000 workers in Howard County.
"Today in Howard County, one in four families struggles to put food on the table and over 13,000 households are severely burdened by the cost of housing. These residents are our neighbors, our friends, our coworkers, our family members," Councilwoman Christina Rigby said.
