Since December 1994, many cities in the United States have passed living wage ordinances. These ordinances typically mandate that businesses under contract with the city, or in some cases receiving assistance from the city (such as subsidies, grants, or tax abatements), must pay their workers a wage sufficient to support a family financially. Baltimore was the first city to pass such legislation, and nearly 40 cities and a number of other jurisdictions have followed suit.
