Check out the Raise the Wage PA coalition's 2015 Activities Report



On Tuesday, December 22, PUP joined local members of the Raise the Wage PA coalition in Lebanon, PA to give State Representative Mauree Gingrich the "Grinch of the Year" Award. Rep. Gingrich, who chairs the House Labor & Industry Committee, has kept legislation to raise the minimum wage bottled up in her committee since February. By doing so, she has prevented a wage hike for 13,000 Lebanon County workers and 1.3 million workers across the state. Check out news coverage and pictures:
