Gov. Tom Wolf is proposing an increase in Pennsylvania’s minimum wage to $12 an hour. The minimum wage has been at $7.25 an hour since 2009, despite rising costs since then. Meanwhile, more than half of the 50 states, including all of Pennsylvania’s neighbors, have raised their minimum wages.
Increasing Pennsylvania’s minimum wage is a recognition that hardworking Pennsylvanians should be able to support themselves and their families. This graphic illustrates who would earn more at work with an increase in the state’s minimum wage.
