Rally to raise the minimum wage makes stop in Wyomissing

WYOMISSING, Pa. - A group pushing for a federal minimum wage increase made its presence known in Wyomissing tonight.

"Can't survive on $7.25. Can't survive on $7.25," picketers chanted.

Americans United for Change brought its 11-state bus tour to the McDonald's on Penn Avenue.

The group is calling for minimum wage to be bumped up to $10.10 an hour, saying it needs to better keep up with inflation.

The group was joined tonight by Dr. Manan Trivedi.

Trivedi is unopposed for the Democratic nomination in the race for Pennsylvania's Sixth Congressional District seat.

The district covers part of Berks County.
