Lancaster County sets $15 minimum wage for its employees

Lancaster County's salary board on Monday set the minimum wage for county employees at $15 per hour, though a proposal to further boost the salaries over the next two years met with hesitation from the county's Republican commissioners.

The bump in pay comes amid hiring difficulties for the county, which has lost roughly 200 employees since 2019, Commissioner John Trescot said, attributing the losses to low pay.
