Workers at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport are pushing for bills in the General Assembly that would increase their wages.
This session, the House and Senate will take up bills to help even the playing field when it comes to airport workers, who gathered in solidarity Monday at Baltimore’s City Hall.
Lawmakers came out in support of legislation creating higher wages for concession workers at the airport, saying many of them are from Baltimore and they deserve more.
"If we want to grow this city we have to take care of the people who live here," said Delegate Cheryl Glenn, D-Baltimore City.
