PUP organizes rally as part of Statewide Day of Action for a Fair Minimum Wage 

As part of Raise the Wage PA's recent Statewide Week of Action for a Fair Minimum Wage, PUP organized a rally in Philadelphia to call on our state legislators to take action to raise PA's minimum wage. It has been 10 years since the General Assembly voted on a minimum wage increase. Events were held in 10 communities across the state.

PUP also participated in a Wilkes-Barre area event which targeted Senator Lisa Baker. She has been holding minimum wage legislation hostage in her committee since January 2015.
