The minimum wage in Pennsylvania is $7.25 an hour. Let that sink in for moment. That’s less than $300 a week, less than $15,000 a year. That’s poverty — if you’re working full-time.
Pennsylvania Working Families is joining with local labor groups, community activist organizations, and faith-based groups to demand that Pennsylvania raise the minimum wage. But we’re still missing a crucial member of our coalition: you!
If you want to put an end to poverty wages in Pennsylvania, now is the time to get on board the Raise the Wage PA campaign, and lend your voice to improve the lives of working families across the state. Will you join us? Click here to add your name to the Raise the Wage PA campaign.
Last November, voters went to the polls to elect Democrat Tom Wolf for Governor. Your votes sent a clear message to Harrisburg — that it’s time for our government and our economy to work for the interests of working families and not just the wealthy and well-connected.
But votes alone aren’t going to get the work done. We need your voice and your stories to illustrate and demand that state lawmakers raise the wage for hardworking Pennsylvanians.
