Information about a webinar on the Minimum Wage sponsored by our non-profit partner AAUW.Who benefits from a higher minimum wage? It is often a discussion with many misperceptions and inaccuracies. AAUW wants to bring you the facts behind the minimum wage discussion and why it is important to the women of Pennsylvania that legislation is passed. The minimum wage in Pennsylvania is the lowest allowable by federal law and has been $7.25 for over 12 years. There is nowhere in Pennsylvania, or anywhere else in the country, where a single person can live on $15,080 a year. Every state surrounding Pennsylvania has a higher minimum wage and more than 70% of PA voters are in favor of raising the minimum wage. So, why haven’t voters been heard? Join AAUW PA Public Policy Chair, Jacqui Rogers for a webinar on Wednesday, April 14, 2021 from 7:00-8:00 pm to explore why we aren’t being heard and how this affects us all. Registration is required at us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_V6qsH9uNT7yjTYsRkt8kfQ ... See MoreSee Less
