HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Thousands of pounds of clothes are sorted at ThredUp every day. It’s a warehouse where customers can send their unused clothing and get cash back or purchase second-hand clothes online at a discounted price.
The warehouse in Cumberland County opened two years ago and is one of four nationwide locations.
Minimum wage in Pennsylvania is $7.25, but ThredUp operations manager Tammy Sallas-Miller said they start at $11 an hour and that paying minimum wage was never up for discussion.
“To me, we just have really great and talented people here, paying a reasonable wage is what we should be doing so that is what we are doing,” she said.
State Rep. Patty Kim (D-Dauphin) sponsored a bill to raise Pennsylvania’s minimum wage to $9 an hour. She said if there’s no action on it during the budget process, she will try again in January.
ThredUp says they’re growing by the day. If you want to join their team, you can find all that information at www.thredup.com/p/careers
