My newest oped: What PA should do about the minimum wage

Pennsylvania's new governor, Tom Wolf, has proposed an increase in the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour.
This increase, which would make Pennsylvania's minimum wage one of the highest in the nation, would be a terrible idea.
An alternative put forward by state Sen. Scott Wagner's, R-York, which increases the minimum wage to $8.75 per hour while holding it constant (at $7.25) for teenagers--is better than Wolf's proposal, although it still would be quite bad for Pennsylvanians.
