Connecticut House approves $15 minimum wage for Connecticut after marathon debate

After an overnight debate, the state House of Representatives voted Thursday to raise Connecticut’s minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2023.

The debate began at 10 p.m. and wrapped up with a 85-59 vote shortly after noon. Much of the time was taken up by Republicans who spoke to a sometimes-empty House chamber about how increasing the minimum wage would stifle the state’s already lackluster economic growth.
