Gene Barr, President and CEO
As I noted in last month's column, one aspect of Gov. Tom Wolf's budget proposal that is concerning to the PA Chamber is an aggressive plan to increase Pennsylvania's minimum wage to $12 in July - which represents 65 percent increase over the current rate - and incrementally increase it to $15 by 2025.

We drove by a hospital and my wife told my son “Chace that is where you were born.” My son: “what do you mean mommy?” My wife: “that is where we went to have you taken out of Mommy’s belly” Chace with a scared look on his face replied: “Mommy why did you eat me?”
