WILLOW GROVE – Calling Pennsylvania’s embarrassingly low minimum wage disrespectful to workers and families, Governor Tom Wolf joined legislators, workers and a Montgomery County business to call on the General Assembly to finally raise the minimum wage to $12 an hour with a path to $15. The governor’s plan increases the wage floor to $12 per hour on July 1, with annual increases of $0.50 until reaching $15 per hour on July 1, 2028. Nearly 25 percent of workers in Pennsylvania, 1.5 million people, would get a boost in pay at $15 per hour. Improving incomes will allow many people, especially women, parents and people of color, to better afford their needs, like housing, groceries, transportation and child care.
