Democrats talk raising the minimum wage at hearing in Philadelphia

By John Cole

At a House Democratic Policy Committee hearing on Wednesday, workers testified about the challenges of working in a state where the minimum wage hasn’t budged since 2009.

“This is more of a call of action,” state Rep. Ryan Bizzarro (D-Erie), committee chairperson, said at the hearing, held at SEIU Local 668 in Philadelphia. “We’ve been talking about this issue for many years.”
