With the opening of Urban Outfitters (the 800,000-square-foot facility in White Township), the addition of 225 jobs for Indiana County will probably benefit some people.

A quick search on a job board states that a “Material Handler” at Urban Outfitters will make $12 an hour.

This is hardly enough to support a family even if you work full time.

The CEO of the company, Richard Hayne, has an estimated net worth of $1.2 billion.

What are the local legislators doing to raise the wages for hardworking Indiana County residents?
