Few midstate workers make minimum wage, but if you are among the few who do, you get a bump in pay today.
The federally mandated minimum wage rises to $7.25 today, up from $6.55 per hour.
The Keystone State's minimum wage rose to $7.15 in 2007, so the move is likely to have a small effect on workers living in the Capital region.
Still, some say the higher minimum wage could help the local and national economies.
