Hello. Thank you for your question. I'll be happy to assist you.

Pennsylvania is a right to work state. For you, that means that you can only bring suit if you can prove that your firing was based on race, color, national origin, sex, pregnancy, religion, age (if the employee is at least 40), disability, citizenship status, or genetic information. If it's not based on one of those things, you will have a difficult time winning suit.
