Connecticut Minimum Wage

Connecticut Minimum Wage As in every state, the minimum wage in Connecticut has been established by the government, it is $8.25 per hour. The federal minimum wage is $7.25 and since it is lower than the Connecticut wage, employees have to receive the Connecticut wage because it is the higher. An employee who works for five days during eight hours per day makes an average weekly salary of 330 dollars; it means that this employee will receive an annual compensation of at least 17,160.

The minimum wage offered in Connecticut is one of the highest in the whole country. And as it happens in other states, people who work more than eight hours per day (over time) will receive an extra payment that will be at least 1.5 times the regular hourly salary assigned by the company. It means that if the person earns the minimum hourly wage, he/she must at least gain $12.38 per each hour of overtime. Companies which make their employees work over time and which do not pay the special compensation are committing a crime and will be penalized by the Connecticut Department of Labor Information.
