UUPLAN is once again collaborating with RaisetheWage PA for a Monday, September 29th Press Event to urge PA legislators to increase the minimum wage. Every state surrounding Pennsylvania has increased the minimum wage for their workers – it is time for Pennsylvania to step up.
The press conference will be staged in Harrisburg in the Capitol Rotunda beginning at 12:30pm.
Speakers include our new minister, Donna Renfro, Senator Judy Schwank, retired steel-worker, Jim Roberts, United Methodist minister, Rev. Yvette Davis, candidate for the 199th district, Jill Bartoli, and IMC president and President of the PA state chapter of the NAACP, Bishop A.E. Sullivan.
The gap created by escalating inequality is growing. Helping low-wage workers by increasing the minimum wage is a step in the right direction.
Attached is a flyer that you may distribute to promote the event. We hope to see you on Monday, September 29th in the Capitol Rotunda at 12:30pm.
