CWA Local 1298 Helps Win Minimum Wage Increase for Connecticut Workers

Big news in Connecticut: after years of organizing and campaigning by workers, unions, and community groups, the Connecticut legislature voted this month to raise the state's minimum wage to $15 per hour!

CWA Local 1298 members have been making regular trips to Hartford to make sure our elected officials understand that fair, livable wages for all workers benefit not just the workers themselves, but the entire community.

The Connecticut State House voted on May 9th to pass the bill, led by bill sponsor and friend to CWA, Representative Robyn Porter. The current $10.10 minimum wage will increase to $15 by June 2023, and will be indexed to the rate of inflation, meaning workers won't have to continuously fight for minimum wage increases going forward.
