Labor laws and regulations that are more cost-effective


State laws and regulations that dictate labor relations and employment policies in Pennsylvania are often outdated, insufficient or unbalanced to the detriment of employers. A number of labor policy reforms are necessary to address abuses and facilitate a fair work environment for both workers and employers. The business community supports rooting out waste and abuse in our unemployment compensation and workers' compensation systems. Business opposes artificial inflations to the cost of maintaining and/or creating a job in Pennsylvania, such as minimum wage increases at the state level, prevailing wage and other mandated wage laws.
