HARRISBURG, Pa. - The possibility of a wage hike is on the table in Pennsylvania, with a bill increasing the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour currently in the House of Representatives. But with the bill gaining momentum, opponents are speaking out, saying businesses would suffer if it passes.

The Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry sent a letter to the General Assembly this week, asking state lawmakers to oppose a minimum wage hike.

As WHAG has reported, the Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce as well as 33 other chambers across Pennsylvania have signed the letter.

In the final draft, the letter highlights the possible negative impacts of a mandated wage increase.

The full letter is attached to this article.
