Montgomery County Minimum Wage Increases on July 1



The minimum wage will rise in Montgomery County on July 1. The number of workers employed by the business will determine the amount of the increase.

The County’s minimum wage will increase to $13 for employers with 51 or more employees and $12.50 for employers with 50 or fewer employees. Employees age 18 and under, who work fewer than 20 hours per week, are exempt from this rate.
