Tell Your PA Lawmaker to Say No to Gov. Tom Wolf's $12 Minimum Wage Proposal

Date: January 01, 2017

Some small businesses simply cannot afford it and jobs will be lost

As part of his 2017-18 budget proposal, Gov. Tom Wolf has proposed an increase in Pennsylvania’s minimum wage to $12.00 an hour immediately with no phase-in. This would equate to a 65-percent increase in mandatory entry level wages. Pennsylvania is one of 21 states that currently follow the federal minimum wage rate of $7.25 an hour. If enacted, the Governor’s proposal would catapult PA’s minimum wage to the highest of any state in the nation for the 2017 calendar year.

Participate in our NFIB Pennsylvania action alert by emailing your lawmaker and asking that they vote no on this issue. Other bills have already been introduced in Harrisburg to hike the minimum wage to as much as $15.00 an hour while some bills get rid of the tipped wage.
