Will cripple CT businesses
HARTFORD- State Rep. Brenda Kupchick (R-132) and Laura Devlin (R-134) on Thursday voted against a proposal to increase the state’s minimum wage to $15 an hour.
Rep. Kupchick said, “As a small business owner for over 30 years, this specific minimum wage proposal will severely harm the mom-and-pop businesses that make up Connecticut’s economic core. My district is filled with businesses that are already struggling to survive in the unfriendly climate that exists with the continued overregulation, and taxation and the prospect of tolls on state roads and required expenses. This proposal is going to add to Connecticut’s struggling economy – not improve it.”
