Today, I held a press conference with my colleagues and advocates on why I believe the time is now to raise the minimum wage. I am proud to stand in strong support of H.B. 6208, on behalf of Connecticut workers who are struggling to make ends meet in minimum wage jobs.
Pleased to join my colleagues of the state legislature's Black and Puerto Rican Caucus at a public forum at the Legislative Office Building to learn about the issues important to the communities we serve. Our future is stronger when we work together!
I am proud to have joined many of my colleagues at a press conference in Hartford, in support of legislation for a $15 minimum wage increase that will help thousands of hard working families in the state. There are various bills that we are considering this session. I will be keeping you updated as we move forward this legislative session!
