Activists rally statewide for minimum wage increase

Activists rally statewide for minimum wage increase

With budget talks continuing in Harrisburg, members of OnePA and other advocacy groups held rallies across the state to demand a minimum wage increase be included in whatever passes the General Assembly this month.

Introduced with the budget earlier this year, Gov. Tom Wolf (D) offered a bump up to $12 an hour from the current $7.25 and then incremental raises to $15 an hour by 2025. Supporters point to the wage increases by all of Pennsylvania’s neighbors as proof workers need a boost.
