Debate Continues Over Raising PA's Minimum Wage

The debate over whether or not to raise the state's minimum wage is continuing. Labor economist Mark Price with the Keystone Research Center says despite increases in the minimum wage in neighboring Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and West Virginia there's been overall job growth in those states. But Alex Halper of the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry says it difficult to make a correlation between job growth and the minimum wage. Halper says taking advantage of the federal Earned Income Tax Credit would help more low income families.
