Pittsburgh City Councilman Corey O'Connor proposes giving small businesses that raise their minimum wage for full-time employees to 10-dollars-and-10 cents, free promotional space on city owned assets including bus shelters, trash cans and senior centers. He says the program wouldn't cost the city any money.
