As it stands, Pennsylvania's minimum wage is set at $7.25/hour. There are now discussions to make it nearly three dollars more an hour at $10.10.
Lois Pulcinello, owner of Myers Brothers Florist in Altoona, is skeptical of the plan. If it goes through, she says she's have to make a lot of cuts, including staff, stock in store and she's have to raise prices.
"As far as paying the same amount as a corporation that grosses $20 million a year, how is that fair?"
