A bump in pay will soon be on the way for minimum wage workers in Connecticut

Governor Ned Lamont is expected to sign the $15 an hour minimum wage bill on Tuesday or Wednesday, but it won’t jump to that right away. 

The increase will be gradual.

On October 1st, it will jump from $10.10 to $11 an hour. Then $12 in 2020, $13 in 2021, $14 in 2022. And, finally, $15 in 2023.
