Workers hold up signs during the Montgomery County Council’s vote to raise the minimum wage.

Dozens of organizations and local officials will speak out to support the passage of a $15-an-hour minimum wage bill on Nov. 29.

“After the election of Donald Trump, it’s even more important that we continue the fight right here in Montgomery County,” Progressive Maryland’s Justin Vest said in a statement. “With a national administration poised to block wage increases and gut workers’ rights, we’re calling on local elected officials to take bold action to resist Trump’s repressive policy agenda.”

This comes just a week before the Council will vote on whether to raise the minimum wage for the County’s lowest income workers to $15 by 2020.

Supporters will gather at the Montgomery County Council Office Building at 6:30 p.m.
