“We applaud the announcement by Governor Malloy to increase the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour. Every nickel going into the paychecks of working men and women gets spent in our economy. Raising the minimum wage boosts spending which creates demand which creates jobs; it’s really simple economics.

“A job should lift someone out of poverty, not trap them in it.

“Governor Malloy’s proposal is a great step toward creating good jobs and lifting workers out of poverty. We encourage legislative leaders to move this proposal rapidly through the process so these hard working men and women can get the raise they so desperately need.”
