Fight for $15

Senator Gomes at workers rally.This month my colleagues and I introduced a bill that would establish a statewide $15 minimum fair wage.

I am proud to say that more than 40 members of the General Assembly have joined me in supporting this legislation that would help increase income for thousands of Connecticut workers, many of whom are currently struggling to meet even the most basic living expenses.

The bill, An Act Increasing the Minimum Fair Wage, would increase the minimum wage to $11 per hour effective Jan. 1, 2018; to $12 on Jan. 1, 2019; to $13 on Jan. 1, 2020; to $14 on Jan. 1, 2021; and finally to $15 effective Jan. 1, 2022.

As Chairman of the Labor & Public Employees Committee, I look forward to advancing this piece of legislation in the General Assembly.
