Last night, Governor Malloy appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball and took the GOP to task on their empty rhetoric against raising the national minimum wage to $10.10 per hour. During his State of the State address earlier this month, Governor Malloy proposed raising Connecticut’s minimum wage to $10.10.
Governor Malloy: “The people who will benefit the most are women. Women who are raising families need this raise in our country.”
Governor Malloy: “…$7.25 is not only not a working wage, it’s a poverty wage. We need to move people out of poverty. We particularly need to move women out of poverty.”
