This report looks at which occupations employ the most people in Pennsylvania communities and what these workers are paid, as well as what the “living wage” of these communities is and how worker’s wages compare to this. This information is important not only to better understand the minimum wage debate at the national level, but also to understand local Pennsylvania communities’ wage and occupational makeup. By understanding these multiple dimensions of the employment opportunities, poverty, and living wages in Pennsylvania, citizens and leaders will be better prepared to make thoughtful considerations and decisions in their communities.
