Richard Madaleno on Jobs
Require state contractors to support apprenticeships

- Voted YES on requiring state contractors to support apprenticeships
Supports tax credits for companies that grow jobs in Maryland and offer 150% of minimum wage
Raise minimum wage to $15 to boost economy
A growing economy must be also a just economy. That starts with a $15 an hour minimum wage, indexed to the cost of living, so that no one falls behind again, and I have proudly supported this in the General Assembly.
One of the cruelest Republican lies is that higher wages are bad for the economy and cost jobs, when the opposite is actually true. Consumer spending drives our economy. When people have more money, the economy grows, and companies hire.
