Kim joins in ‘Zero Waste PA’ bill package to address single-use plastics, litter and a ‘throwaway’ society

(Apr 10, 2019)

HARRISBURG, April 10 – State Rep. Patty Kim today joined other lawmakers and PennEnvironment to announce a package of bills aimed at addressing single-use plastics, pervasive issues of litter and the various environmental harms caused by a "throwaway" society. Legislation in the “Zero Waste PA” package works to address issues created by a disposable society including single-use plastics such as straws, plastic bags and Styrofoam takeout food containers, electronic waste, funding Pennsylvania’s recycling programs and more. “The rising costs of recycling need to be addressed. My legislation would remedy this problem by authorizing counties to collect a recycling and waste management fee, which would be used to support recycling programs,” said Kim, D-Dauphin. “Every day, unwitting Pennsylvanians are barraged with products that we’re expected to purchase and use, and then throw away. Only, there is no ‘away,’” said PennEnvironment Executive Director David Masur. “Instead, it ends up in landfills where it can cause water pollution, in incinerators that cause air pollution, or blowing around in our neighborhoods in the form of litter. Nothing we use for a few minutes should pollute our environment, neighborhoods, rivers and oceans for centuries to come.” The measures that would be addressed in the package include: Prohibiting food establishments from using polystyrene containers Read more

One Fair Wage means a better life for millions of working Pennsylvanians

(Mar 18, 2019)

It’s time to give hard-working Pennsylvanians their first pay raise in more than 10 years. Many of the men and women in Pennsylvania we entrust with taking care of the people most important to us -- our infants and small children while we work, our older family members, our loved ones with physical and cognitive disabilities -- don't earn enough to raise their own families. These working Pennsylvanians make tremendous sacrifices every day to support our families; we need to show them that we support theirs. Our One Fair Wage proposal makes sure the working people who watch our children, clean our homes and hotel rooms, prepare and serve our food, and even care for our parents and grandparents earn a wage allowing them to support themselves and their families. When we raise the minimum wage in Pennsylvania to $12 per hour, guarantee it’s raised annually until it reaches $15 an hour, and tie future raises to the actual cost of food, rent and medicine we make sure workers don’t fall behind again, and also make sure workers can afford to be customers, growing a stronger economy for everyone. And, for the first time in our state’s history, One Fair Wage would set the tipped wage at the same level as the minimum wage. Right now the tipped wage is – and we’re serious -- $2.83 per hour. After taxes, that’s a take-home pay of about $80 a week. The tipped wage has created a system of unfair pay that hurts women and people of Read more
