Governor Tom Wolf has been proposing to raise the PA minimum wage to $12 this year and thereafter by 50 cents a year until it rises to $15.

The map below, from Turn PA Blue, 6/4/19, shows that minimum wages in the 6 adjoining states are currently between $8.55 and $11.10, with 3 of them scheduled to rise soon.

But the R majority in H’burg wouldn’t hear of it and thanks to their stranglehold on the just-passed state budget, they once again denied minimum-wage Pennsylvanian employees the chance to increase their take-home pay for the first time since 2008. One more reason for voters to make a big change in H’burg next year!

“Democracy is not a state. It is an act, and each generation must do its part.”
