CT Minimum Wage Increases, CO Minimum Wage Decreases

February 13th, 2010 | By Jules Halpern Associates | Colorado Law, Connecticut Law, Minimum Wage, Wages and Hours

Connecticut’s minimum wage increased to $8.25 per hour as of January 1, 2010.

On the other hand, as of January 1, 2010, Colorado’s minimum wage decreased from $7.28 per hour to $7.24 per hour. This drop marks the first decrease in any state’s minimum wage since the federal minimum wage was adopted in 1938. Colorado’s minimum wage is tied to inflation and dropped because the state’s consumer price index fell to 0.6% in 2009. However, since no state’s minimum wage can be below the federal minimum wage, employees in Colorado must receive a minimum wage of at least $7.25 per hour in 2010.
