Senator Tartaglione said that the Pennsylvania legislature hasn’t raised the state’s minimum wage in the last 13 years, and has raised it just twice in the last 42 years. Meanwhile, 29 U.S. states have raised their minimum wages above the federal minimum, which now stands at $7.25 per hour. Tartaglione’s Senate Bill 12 would provide long overdue relief to millions of low wage-earners throughout the Commonwealth.
The senator addressed the annual press conference of the Pennsylvania Assistive Technology Foundation, which helps people with disabilities and older Pennsylvanians obtain assistive technology and provides them with financial assistance and education. This event was held on June 3 in the Main Capitol Rotunda.
