I hope Friday's news includes an account of the late Thursday vote in the Senate to raise the mininum wage to $7.15, although more slowly than the House bill and especially slowly for employees of employers with 10 or less employees.

The House Bill is a lot better than the Senate Bill, but the Senate Bill is a lot better than nothing. Strong opponents of any minimum wage increase at any time are hoping that the two bills will cancel each other out and nothing will actually happen.

We are scheduling a press conference for Democratic legislative leaders and others in Harrisburg on Monday, June 26, at the first break of the day (about 1:30 p.m.)to discuss our plans to force action before we recess for the summer.
