Pennsylvania hasn't hiked the state minimum wage since 2006, and while Gov. Wolf supports a hike to $10.10/hour, the state legislature might well need more convincing. Don't let legislators tell you the zombie lie that the minimum wage is for teenagers and part-timers -- fully a third of this state's minimum wage workers are full-time, and if we hiked the minimum wage to $10.10/hour in Pennsylvania, then seven out of eight folks who'd see a pay hike would be adults, and half of those who'd see pay hikes are already working full time. And don't let folks try to tell you that they did fine on $2/hour back in the day, because a little thing called inflation does exist, and because the minimum wage in Pennsylvania was a mere 26% of the state's average salary by 2006, the lowest it had been in almost 70 years. (Now it's up a bit to 34%, which is still considerably lower than it was back in the day.) So Keystone Progress helps you tell your state legislators to raise the minimum wage in Pennsylvania.
Meanwhile, FAIR informs us that the Washington Post has published anti-climate change op-eds from a man who heads the lobbying firm BGR, a firm that just so happens to include some big polluting corporations among its clients, most notably Chevron. Now a right-winger might snap back, lots of corporations pay BGR lots of money to advocate on their behalf, including two labor unions, but that would be a red herring -- the more relevant (and effective) refutation would be BGR takes just as much money from renewable energy corporations, a lie no one is peddling. And maybe $1 million-plus ain't that much money to the five fossil fuel and utility corporations that paid BGR in 2014, but it's a lot of money to the people doing the lobbying. In any case, the Post should tell its readers that BGR takes big money from corporations that would have something to gain from the notion that climate change is relatively unimportant.
