Due to inaction of the Senate, House Bill 2375 was not acted on and as a result, nearly 500 state workers in Pennsylvania will be out of jobs and given furlough during the holidays. Many say this is due to an unsympathetic Republican Senate reacting to Democrat Governor Tom Wolf.

But in 2014, 18 states and D.C. raised their minimum wages, and the results have been quite clearly positive for local economies, reports The Atlantic.
