(photo) Sen. Kane, Quassy Owner Testify Against Anti-Biz Bill

February 20, 2014

Quassy Amusement & Waterpark Owner George Frantzis II (left) and Sen. Rob Kane (R-Watertown) (right) on Feb. 19 testified at the Legislative Office Building in opposition to a bill which would make Connecticut’s minimum wage the highest in the country. Sen. Kane, a small business owner, said the legislation “will force small businesses to raise prices, scale back employee hours and cut jobs, the last thing we need in this economy.” Sen. Kane urged legislators on the Labor and Public Employees Committee to “consider the message being sent to businesses looking to either move into Connecticut or looking to leave Connecticut when you vote on this bill.” The 2014 legislative session runs until May.
