Response of Senator Martin Looney

“From President Obama to Governor Malloy, momentum is building to address income inequality in this country,” said Senator Looney.  “People working fulltime jobs should receive a wage that allows them to care for their families. A low minimum wage forces the government to subsidize the cost of employment while privatizing the profits.  As a result, the costs are shifted to government in the form of aid to low wage workers.”
