Democratic Baltimore mayor vetoes $15-per-hour minimum wage proposal

While leftist activists across the U.S. are clamoring for a higher hourly wage for low-skilled workers, opponents of such measures point out the potentially negative impact on employers, consumers and those looking for entry-level jobs.

One Democratic mayor agrees implementing a proposed $15 minimum wage is not a prudent move at the moment.

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh recently vetoed legislation that would implement the wage increase within the city.

Bernard Young, the council’s president and also a Democrat, has similarly shared reticence about the legislative effort.
