LANCASTER, Pa. — Sen. Art Haywood (D-Montgomery/Phila) and Rep. Ismail Smith-Wade-El (D-Lancaster) held a rally yesterday to call on government officials to raise the minimum wage.
The Raise the Wage rally introduced Sen. Haywood’s new legislation, which would:
- Enact a $15 minimum wage by January 2024.
- End preemption so that local governments can set their own rates.
- End the $2.83 tip wage so that there is one fair wage for all, including those in the food service industry.
- Enact a yearly cost-of-living adjustment to avoid repeating this legislative battle year-over-year.
