Minimum wage may be on the back burner in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, but it's moving ahead in the states. Maryland is on the brink of becoming the second state to increase its minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, with General Assembly holding a final vote Monday and Gov. Martin O'Malley's signature a certainty as he campaigned for an even stronger measure. It's not a perfect bill; $10.10 won't be reached until 2018, and: It also freezes the base wage for tipped workers at $3.63 per hour, which is 50 percent of the federal minimum wage but not the proposed state wage. O'Malley had proposed increasing that base wage to 70 percent of the state's minimum wage, which eventually could have been more than $7 per hour. Businesses would also be allowed to pay a lower training wage — 85 percent of the state minimum wage — to workers under the age of 20 for their first six months. And some businesses are set to be exempt from paying the full higher state minimum: seasonal amusement parks, cafes and restaurants with annual income below $400,000 and the state's one drive-in movie theater. 3 Steps To Join #FowlerNation! 1.
