Prevailing Minimum Wage

February 23, 2017

I will be fighting against HB 6211, which would update the prevailing wage thresholds, and SB 432, an act concerning exceptions to the prevailing wage requirement in public works projects. Both of these bills are harmful to workers and Connecticut’s economy because they drive down employee wages and limit an employee’s ability to buy goods and services at a level that keep the economy growing. To further fight against these bad bills, I will be supporting HB 6965, An Act Concerning Connecticut Jobs, which would help create jobs for the construction industry.
