Minimum Wage in Pennsylvania – More than a million would benefit from an increase

The impact of a minimum-wage hike in Pennsylvania would benefit more than 1 million workers from all areas of the state, according to a new report from the Keystone Research Center. KRC Labor Economist Mark Price co-authored the study. He says boosting the state’s minimum wage to $10.10 an hour by 2016 would have a major ripple effect from one end of Pennsylvania to the other. Capture d’écran 2014-05-12 à 10.13.58

“Of that million, roughly 340,000 of the people who would benefit from this minimum-wage increase live in the state’s rural areas,” Price says. “Those folks represent about 23 percent of the rural workforce, and that’s a greater share than you would find in the state’s urban areas.”
