Connecticut is the latest state to boost its minimum wage. The state legislature approved a bill Wednesday to raise the minimum wage from $8.70 and hour to $9.15 by next January. The increase will top out at $10.10 by 2017. Democratic Governor Daniel Malloy, who proposed the increase, announced he would sign the bill into law this evening. But not everyone is happy about it. The bill makes Connecticut the first state to match Democrats' proposal to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10, a move President Obama supports.
