Connecticut Minimum Wage Increases To $13 An Hour On Sunday
Minimum wage earners in Connecticut are poised to get a raise. Beginning Sunday, the state's current $12 an hour rate will increase to $13 an hour. It marks the latest step toward gradually increasing the rate to $15 an hour. The hourly wage is scheduled to increase to $14 on July 1, 2022, and to $15 on June 1, 2023. Beginning Jan. 1, 2024, state law will require the minimum wage to become indexed to the employment cost index, which is calculated by the U.S. Department of Labor, marking the first time Connecticut's rate will grow according to economic indicators.
