Rep. Mark Cohen (D-Philadelphia) has proposed legislation that would repeal the ban on local governments setting their own minimum wage standards and to also establish a time-frame for a state increase to $11.50 per hour. Rep. Cohen’s legislation is one of a handful of bills in the state legislature right now regarding minimum wage. The National Federation of Independent Business of PA has conducted a research study to see what the effects would be of these bills on PA jobs and the economy. Rep. Mark Cohen (D-Philadelphia) and Suzanne Collins Stoltenberg, State Communications Director of NFIB will be here to discuss.
