Sen. Tartaglione, Colleagues, Advocates to Outline Minimum Wage Action in Press Conference
HARRISBURG, Sept. 29, 2015 – The General Assembly’s leading minimum wage advocate will hold a press conference at 10:30 a.m., Wednesday, Sept. 30, in the Capitol Rotunda to explain how she plans to get Republicans to finally consider increasing the base hourly rate to $10.10.
Sen. Christine M. Tartaglione has proposed measures to move Pennsylvania’s minimum wage to $10.10 but her bill has received no consideration since it was referred to the Senate Labor and Industry Committee.
Of the Northeast U.S. states with a minimum wage, Pennsylvania’s $7.25 is the lowest paid to hourly workers.
The senator will be joined by minimum wage advocates and other members of her Democratic caucus.
Media coverage is encouraged.
