The $3.00 increase applies to several hundred state employees, primarily janitorial and clerical workers, and more than 100 contracted vendors that provide landscaping, cleaning, and food preparation services to state facilities. The order also calls for the wage level to increase with inflation, reports The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
