Here's your daily look at five stories we're following:

1. Sixers in Camden: The New Jersey Economic Development Authority is scheduled to weigh in on a requested $82 million subsidy for the 76ers to build a practice facility on the Camden waterfront at its meeting today.

2. SEPTA labor negotiations: SEPTA is moving to impose terms in a labor fight with Regional Rail workers, prompting union leaders to threaten a strike this weekend.

3. Wages for airport workers: Some low-paid service employees at the Philadelphia International Airport are trying to pressure officials to make all city subcontractors start paying a new minimum wage that went into effect in May. (Subcontractors and contractors are allowed to keep paying the old wage until new contracts with employees are signed.) Dozens of airport workers are set to attend a City Council hearing on the matter today.

4. 20 years for The Notebook: The Philadelphia Public School Notebook, which provides in-depth coverage of the city's public school system, is celebrating its 20th anniversary today.
