HAMDEN- It is official, the state of Connecticut has raised the hourly minimum wage from $10.10 an hour to $11 an hour.

Quinnipiac student workers were pleased about the news; they feel as if it was finally time. The increase is not supposed to stop there as it is said that every year, the minimum hourly wage will be raised by a dollar until 2023.

Quinnipiac students have said that it has a lot of potentials, especially for the people who have to live off of that money

The increase comes after governor Ned Lamont signed the registration last week.

Sadly, with triumph comes hardship, with the rise in the minimum wage, federal work-study employee’s hours are limited and cut down.
