Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: December 19, 2016 10:08 AM
From: Senator Scott Wagner
To: All Senate members
Subject: Raising the Minimum Wage
In the near future, I will be reintroducing legislation (Senate Bill 610 of 2015-2016) to raise the minimum wage paid to employees in Pennsylvania.

My legislation will have the following provisions:
  • Raises the minimum wage to $8.75/hour in $0.50 increments over the course of three years.
  • Provides for a “training wage” for everyone age 18 and under equal to the current federal minimum wage ($7.25/hour currently).
Previous co-sponsors were: AUMENT, BROWNE, GORDNER, McGARRIGLE, and SCAVELLO.

If you have any questions, please contact Jason E. High at 717-787-3817 or jhigh@pasen.gov.

Introduced as SB865
