Is That Why The Problem In Pa? Min Wage Is $9.35 An Hour?

Postby Garmond » Tue Oct 03, 2017 10:47 am

I've been trying to figure out what the problem is in PA.

The companies are closing left and right - and those that are staying are having trouble finding high level employees.

Can't for the life of me figure out what is the problem with that state.

I thought it could be high taxes and high property taxes.

Then I thought maybe it's a severe immigration problem.

Now I see that min wage for full time is over $9 an hour?

Anyone live there? - tell me - what in the world is going on there?

Companies are closing left and right because most of them are out-sourced. Our president said that ANY company in our country that is out-sourced, has to pay HUGE taxes, and it's unaffordable for them. Or they close it because they don't want to pay that much in taxes.

min wage in Penna is $7.25/hr - same as most of the US - I don't know of any state in the US with a min wage of $9/hr

where are you reading this bogus information?

unemployment in Penna is below the national average and property taxes are not high everywhere in Pa - I own 2 rental homes where I pay less than $600/yr in property tax - stop with the BS generalizations - Penna is like 40,000 square miles of land and prices are vastly different all over the state - same as most states probably- New Jersey's property taxes are at least double Pennsylvania's on average - and NY has lot higher car insurance and income tax rates too - same for New York

and why would there be any kind immigration problem here? - never mind "severe" - we aren't located near any major immigration entry points - Housing prices in Penna during the crash dropped a lot less than many other states like Nevada and Arizona and California, and we have one of the lowest state income taxes around

you obviously don't live in Penna, so how can you possibly know what is going on here
