It's bad enough that in Pennsylvania the minimum wage is only $7.25/hr. The only other place in our country where this specific tax is implemented is in Berkeley, CA. Minimum wage in CA is $10.00/hr. In Berkeley many residents travel to other cities to shop. In Philly, the people who will be most affected by this tax, don't have the means to travel to another city to shop.
This tax is ridiculous. Please visit:
