Local lawmaker opposes minimum wage increase proposal

A local lawmaker opposes a proposal to hike the state's minimum wage.  Wilton Senator Toni Boucher says the proposal, particularly at this time, would damage Connecticut's struggling economy and further weaken its anemic job market.   She noted that the state's unemployment is higher than any other state in the Northeast.  Boucher says the small increase a minimum wage earner will receive may not be enough to offset the higher costs businesses are forced to pass on to consumers.
