HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Discussions toward raising Pennsylvania’s minimum wage for the first time since 2009 are heating up.
The move is also an effort to get Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf to abandon an extension of overtime pay eligibility to thousands of workers.
Leaders of the Senate’s Republican majority said Friday that negotiators must compromise for a bill to pass the chamber. Any bill would still have to pass the Republican-controlled House of Representatives before being sent for approval to Gov. Wolf.
