HARTFORD, CT - Today, State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) issued the following statement after joining Governor Ned Lamont, Senate President Martin Looney (D-New Haven), Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk), Senator Julie Kushner (D-Danbury), State Representative Robyn Porter (D-New Haven) and dozens of others as Governor Lamont signed legislation enacting an increase in the minimum wage.

“Today was a good day in our efforts to address the challenges of the fastest-growing segment in our community, the ‘working poor,’” said Sen. Anwar. “This bill is a step in the right direction for addressing the racial, economic and gender-based injustice that has become intrinsic in our society. I’m grateful for all of the people who have worked to address this $15 minimum wage increase over the next four and a half years.”
