CT Reps Vote – June 26, 2006

Those making minimum wage you’ve been shafted by the Senate. Not by CTs reps though. Joe and Chris said YES but the 60 other YES votes needed to bump up the minimum from $5.15 to $7.25 were elsewhere.

Oh! And! A vote to adjust the minimum wage to “$6.25 while decreasing taxes and regulations for small businesses” was also rejected! Smack down! Bam!
