NEW BRITAIN – Governor Malloy announced that President Obama will speak at Central Connecticut State University on Wednesday, in an effort to garner support for increasing the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour. They will be joined in New Britain by Governor Deval L. Patrick of Massachusetts, Governor Lincoln D. Chafee of Rhode Island and Governor Peter E. Shumlin of Vermont.
“There is a debate happening across our country on how to tackle the growing income inequality that is detrimental to our middle class families and to our economy. Part of tackling that critically important challenge is making sure that we recognize that a decent wage is good for workers and good for business,” said Governor Malloy.
“For too long, the minimum wage has not kept up with the cost of living,” continued the Governor.
CCSU said “We are honored that President Barack Obama will give a speech at the University.”
