WILLIMANTIC, Conn. (WTIC Radio) - Governor Lamont is joining other state officials Monday to announce an increase in Connecticut's minimum wage.
The increase is taking place on January 1, 2024 as part of an indicator adjustment process.
The state implemented five incremental increases in the minimum wage between 2019 and 2023.
Then, beginning on January 1, 2024, and occurring annually every January 1 thereafter, that same law requires the minimum wage to be adjusted each year according to the U.S. Department of Labor’s calculation of the employment cost index.
The governor will be joined at the news conference by Lt. Governor Susan Bysiewicz, Connecticut Labor Commissioner Danté Bartolomeo, state legislators, and advocates.
The exact wage has not been released as of Monday morning.
