Activists Drop Off Over 10,000 Petition Signatures to Republican Leaders

On Monday, June 8th, members of the Raise the Wage PA coalition delivered over 10,000 petition signatures calling on the state legislature to raise PA’s minimum wage to at least $10.10 for all PA workers.

After a brief press conference, workers and other advocates went to the offices of Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman, Senate Labor & Industry Chair Lisa Baker, House Majority Leader Dave Reed, and House Labor & Industry Chair Mauree Gingrich to give them the petitions, and to demand that they stop stonewalling the process and allow a vote on legislation to raise the minimum wage.

They then stopped by Governor Wolf’s office, where the Governor himself met them and encouraged them to continue fighting for an increase.
