PUPBanner 1215alternate2

For years, the Philadelphia Unemployment Project has been on the front lines of the fight for fair wages. PUP is currently coordinating a statewide coalition of community, labor, faith-based, and other organizations fighting for an increase in the PA minimum wage. The coalition, Raise the Wage PA, is calling on our elected officials to:

  • Raise the minimum wage to at least $10.10 an hour (currently $7.25)

  • Eliminate the separate minimum wage for tipped workers (currently $2.83)

  • Include a cost of living adjustment so that the minimum wage keeps pace with inflation

  • Eliminate the preemption of localities to set their own minimum wages

  • Significantly increase fines and penalties on employers who engage in wage theft against their employees, and to strenghten enforcement

 

More information can be found on the coalition's website: www.raisethewagepa.org
