Governor Wolf Raises Minimum Wage for State Employees and Contractors

Published on

March 8, 2016

Yesterday, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf signed an executive order raising the minimum wage for state employees to $10.15 per hour. The executive order also covers employees of government contractors and lessees, provided that the employees perform direct services to the Commonwealth or spend at least 20 percent of their working time on ancillary services related to a government contract or lease. The executive order calls for an annual increase in wages from $10.15, keyed to the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers.

The executive order is part of Governor Wolf’s “Jobs That Pay” initiative. The wage increase will take effect for all government employees immediately and on contracts solicited or bilaterally modified on or after July 1, 2016.

The text of the Executive Order is available here.
