PA Minimum Wage Proposed to Increase

Sen. Christine Tartaglione (D-Phil) has proposed a raise in the minimum wage from $7.25 to $9 an hour by 2015. A second measure, Senate Bill 1099, would boost the minimum wage for tipped employees to 70 percent of the regular minimum wage. Tartaglione said the minimum wage for tipped employees has remained unchanged at $2.83 an hour for 15 years. She said the wages would rise in increments to ensure employers are not financially overburdened.
