Response of Senators Blumenthal, Murphy

“Governor Malloy will be a key ally in our continued fight to raise the minimum wage. Middle class wages have simply not kept pace with the cost of living in our state. As the cost of basic necessities like child care, electricity, and transportation have risen dramatically, real wages for the vast majority of workers, especially low-income workers, have fallen or stagnated. Raising the minimum wage will create jobs—it will put more cash into the pockets of the people who need it and who will also spend it in their communities. That will give local economies a big boost.”
