$7.15/hr, ready or not, here we come!

if only i wasn't subsumed in the throngs of finals, i would have been in harrisburg ... check out the coverage, with video.

from the trusty email inbox:
... Nearly 400 people from all over Pennsylvania joined together to demand a "VOTE...NOW" and "$7.15 - nothing in between." Speakers included bishops, labor leaders, community leaders, low wage workers, clergy and members of the senate and the Rendell administration. We heard a commitment from Republican Senator Stewart Greenleaf that a bill would be voted and passed in a bi-partisan manner in the near future. Let's hope that is true. If not we will continue until a fair minimum wage has been enacted in Pennsylvania ...
woo hoo! gotta love those pictures on the rotunda steps...
