Is Connecticut’s minimum wage hike to $10.10 in 2017 a good thing?
Yes. Raising the minimum boosts earning and buying power and will help Connecticut’s economy. This will lift many families out of poverty.
No. Raising the minimum wage will hurt businesses that can’t afford $1.40 an hour more in pay. This only increases Connecticut’s reputation as business-unfriendly.
Yes. It’s inhumane to expect people to live on so little money. This raise should be just the start toward a living wage.
No. The minimum wage here was already fourth highest in the nation. No wonder Connecticut’s jobless rate is higher than the nation’s.
