In response to the Connecticut minimum wage increasing to  $14 an hour on July 1,  SEIU 1199NE President Rob Baril released the following statement:


“Paychecks are rising in Connecticut because working people fought to boost the minimum wage and won. It's because of the courage and bravery of Black, Brown, API and white working-class folks across our state that minimum wage workers will receive a much-needed raise. At the same time, we know that we need to do more to become a state that really supports working families. Workers are demanding livable wages, critical supports like paid leave and affordable healthcare, and a voice at work through a union. We're boldly calling on Connecticut leaders to meet the needs of our residents by fully funding and filling state jobs that provide essential public services. Workers welcome the July 1 state minimum wage raise. But our struggle for social and economic justice continues so all of us can thrive above the hustle to survive on $14 an hour.”
