Do you think Connecticut can afford more raises for government lawyers?

April 16, 2019

Tell Connecticut Democrats to stand with Republicans and reject these pay hikes.

Last month, Connecticut Democrats approved 11% pay hikes for lawyers who work for the state attorney general and stipends of $6,000 – $12,000 for department heads.

Now, the legislature is considering MORE raises for MORE lawyers. This time it’s the state’s tax attorneys who would get an 11.6% wage increase.

These contracts will add to the state’s fixed costs, and crowd out funding for core services, like education and support for the most vulnerable.

Connecticut CANNOT afford this.

Here’s how you can make a difference.

Last month’s vote approving attorney raises was close, with the final tally at 19 to 17 in the Senate. That means we can PUT A STOP to more unaffordable lawyer pay hikes if we can get JUST TWO MORE DEMOCRATS to join us and vote against this contract.
