Tax The Big Businesses That Won’t Pay CT Workers A Living Wage
State Rep. Peter Tercyak (26), Chair of the Legislature’s Labor Committee and a Registered Nurse, penned this September 1st Op-Ed for The Connecticut Mirror
If you work a full-time job in Connecticut, or anywhere in the United States for that matter, you should be able to afford the basics you need to live – housing, enough to eat, heat, transportation to work, and a little savings.
But every day there are people, mothers, fathers, and grandparents, who work 40 hours a week for some of the wealthiest corporations in this country – Walmart, McDonald’s, Dunkin’ Donuts to name a few – and still live in poverty. These workers skip meals so their children can eat. They don’t turn on the heat in winter because they worry about not being able to pay the bill.
Change of Schedule: The Democratic Town Committee meeting for September 18th has been re-scheduled to September 25th
