Councilmember Jawando withdraws controversial tipped minimum wage bill

January 17, 2024

A controversial bill that would have raised the base minimum wage for tipped workers in Montgomery County was withdrawn by its lead sponsor councilmember Will Jawando (D-At-large) on Tuesday, but similar efforts are still underway in the Maryland General Assembly. “The action to withdraw the bills is in coordination with other regional partners who are advancing similar measures to focus on state policy to support tipped employees,” Jawando said in a statement from his office.
