After introducing the Governors of Connecticut, Massachusets, Rhode Island, and Vermont and acknowledging members of student government and University leadership, President Barack Obama delivered a speech advocating an increase of minimum wage nationally to $10.10 per hour at Central Connecticut State University Wednesday.  Watch the speech in it's entirety here.

 Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy has stated his determination to continue to drive the minimum wage rate in Connecticut upward from $8.70 this year, to $9.00 in January of 2015.  Connecticut's minimum is already above the national minimum of $7.25 per hour, which Obama pointed out has been losing value relative to inflation for many years.
