The first minimum wage law was passed in America over 75 years ago. On a chilly Wednesday afternoon, October 24th, a rally and “speak out” protest, supported by social justice activists, was held at McKeldin Square, in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor area to mark that anniversary. A campaign is currently underway in Maryland, and across the country, too, to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour. To learn more about this laudable effort, go to “National Workers Demand a Pay Raise,” at: https://www.facebook.com/events/15487… and “Peoples Power Assemblies” at: https://www.facebook.com/PeoplesPower… Speaking on camera are activists Barbara Bridges, Marvin “Doc” Cheatham, Crystal Richardson and Beth Emmerling. Sharon Black helped to organize the rally and served as the moderator of the program. Cheatham is running for the House of Delegates in the 40th legislative district. He said that if he wins one of the first Bills that he will introduce will be one to “raise the minimum wage – a living wage – in Maryland” and another to ensure “equal pay for equal work for women.”
