Pennsylvania: It's time to raise the minimum wage!

We call on the state legislature and governor to raise the Pennsylvania minimum wage to at least $10.10 an hour, to index it for inflation, and to eliminate a separate tipped minimum wage.

Why is this important?

Nearly one in five Pennsylvania workers would get a pay hike if the minimum wage goes up. It’s time for our government to update the wage floor so people can afford the basics, like food, rent and transportation. Increasing the state’s minimum wage to $10.10 an hour or more would raise the earnings for at least a million Pennsylvania workers, boost the state’s economy and build stronger communities. 70% of PA residents support an increase in the minimum wage. It's time for our elected officials to act on the will of the voters and support low wage workers in our state by raising the minimum wage now!
