On Thursday, July 2nd, Raise the Wage PA, including several PUP members, held a rally in Harrisburg to raise the minimum wage. We joined 60 PA residents who had been occupying the Capitol all week to demand a fair state budget. Together, we marched to the PA Restaurant & Lodging Association to demand that they stop fighting against a fair minimum wage for Pennsylvania’s workers.
