PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., Feb. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Wendell W. Young IV, President of UFCW Local 1776, urged lawmakers tosupport Governor Tom Wolf's proposals to increase the minimum wage, close corporate tax loopholes and make state government more efficient without sacrificing vital services and investments in our public schools.
Young noted that the governor's budget calls for a larger contribution from the PLCB to the state next year.
"The fact is that the PLCB last year returned nearly $584 million in taxes, profits and other transfers to taxpayers," Young said. "We believe that we can build on that track record so long as the legislature provides us with the necessary tools to make this valuable asset deliver a greater return."
