    The Montgomery County Council is holding a hearing on a bill to increase the minimum wage in the county to $15 an hour by 2020.

    The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday evening in Rockville.

    In 2013, the council enacted a bill that created a county minimum wage. 

    Since then, Montgomery's minimum wage has gone up twice. It's scheduled to go up again to $10.75 an hour on July 1.

    It will increase to $11.50 per hour on July 1 of next year.
