WORKING: Minimum Wage Hike on the Horizon, Perhaps
Workers in the District who make the minimum wage may be in for a pleasant surprise. Starting in January, the minimum wage may be raised to $6.60/hour, if a measure that would do so makes it through the city council. So if you live near Glenmont and work, let's say, at Tenleytown, you won't be spending as much of your hourly wage on getting too and from work on the subway. It'll be like the transit fare hike never happened.
