Minimum Wage Increases

Gov. Ned Lamont reminded Connecticut residents that the state minimum wage increased from $11 per hour to $12, effective yesterday. The raise is a result of a law signed on May 28, 2019. Public Act 19-4 requires the minimum wage to increase five times over a five-year period, from the then-rate of $10.10 to $11 on Oct. 1, 2019; $12 on Sept. 1, 2020; $13 on Sunday, Aug. 1, 2021; $14 on Friday, July 1, 2022; and finally $15 on Thursday, June 1, 2023.
