MUST SEE TV: Gov. Malloy Takes the GOP to Task on Minimum Wage Increase on MSNBC’s Hardball


Last night, Governor Malloy appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball and took the GOP to task on their empty rhetoric against raising the national minimum wage to $10.10 per hour.  During his State of the State address earlier this month, Governor Malloy proposed raising Connecticut’s minimum wage to $10.10.

Governor Malloy: “The people who will benefit the most are women.  Women who are raising families need this raise in our country.”

Governor Malloy: “…$7.25 is not only not a working wage, it’s a poverty wage.  We need to move people out of poverty. We particularly need to move women out of poverty.”
