Report: Connecticut’s living wage is $19.08 an hour

HARTFORD, Conn. – A national research group released a report Tuesday that concluded the living wage for a single adult in Connecticut is $19.08 an hour.

That number increases to $40.48 per hour for a Connecticut adult with two children.

The “Families Out of Balance” report is the first in the 2014 Job Gap Economic Prosperity Series produced by the Alliance for a Just Society. The Connecticut Citizens Action Group helped contribute Connecticut-specific information to the report.

The overall report found that low-income households bear a dramatically disproportionate debt burden. The low-income group has $15.64 in income for every $1 of debt, while more affluent workers have $32.42 for every $1 of debt.

    Encouraging firms to leave CT through fiscal mismanagement leaves Democrats with an obvious problem. Where are the jobs ?
