Ervin on Minimim Wage Increase

Ervin Headshot Green 2-2-09Montgomery County Councilmember Valerie Ervin released this statement on the county’s approval of the minimum wage increase:

“To the thousands of Montgomery County residents who are doing everything right and still struggling to feed their families, raise their children, and keep the lights on—we see you. The Council voted to raise the Montgomery County minimum wage to $11.50 per hour over four years. Much will be said about and amongst my colleagues, but this has never been and will never be about the members of the Montgomery County Council. There is much work that remains to be done—by all of us— to make sure that working families in this county thrive. I only hope we made it a little easier.”
