The number of poverty wage jobs in Pennsylvania has risen by 11 percent in the last three years, according to a new report by theKeystone Research Center.
The State of Working PA Report also found wages falling around the state, and job growth slowing. Research note that the state “recorded as much job creation in the first full year after the end of the recession as it has in the subsequent two and a half years.”
The report also says that 84 percent of income growth in Pennsylvania between 2009 and 2010 happened to the wealthiest 1 percent.
