The three, as well as other community members and leaders, gathered on the day of the release of a new report from Pittsburgh UNITED on the city's income inequality gap, reporting that UPMC's service workers' wages come in between 8 to 30 percent less than the lowest sustainable family wage. 'The future of the economy in Pittsburgh is dependent on the success of those at the lowest end of the wage scale,' said City of Pittsburgh Controller Michael Lamb, speaking at the event. Lamb said there were a lot of factors involved when talking about growing the middle class. 'The key to that is having our largest employers pay decent wages.' UPMC stands as the region's largest employer, healthcare provider, and real estate owner, employing over 55,000 people.
