Rodricks: 50,000 jobs that pay at least $60 grand; Mike Rosenbaum’s big-brain plan for Baltimore

February 11, 2022

It remains to be seen if any candidate for governor has a big-brain plan for the future of Maryland — and particularly the Baltimore region — as potentially transformative as Mike Rosenbaum’s. The state’s operating budget is well north of $50 billion now, and Rosenbaum wants us to redirect a few billion over eight years toward raising the incomes of thousands of Marylanders, while building a workforce to serve four key economic sectors. Men and women stuck with low wages need to be making at least $60,000 a year to live a decent life in Maryland, Rosenbaum argues, and there is a way to get them there with bold, upfront public investment.
