In 2019, The Governor signed legislation that will gradually increase the minimum hourly wage in Connecticut to $15.00 over the next several years. The Student Labor/Work-Study Pay Scales have been adjusted to coincide with that change. The next increase is scheduled for September 1st. The hourly rate for any student whose active payroll authorization is not at the minimum of the new pay class will be systematically increased. We encourage employers to review the hourly rates of those student employees whose rates will not be automatically increased to identify any inequities and manually process increases to their pay rates using the Student Payroll Data/Pay Change template (UC_TBH_DC_STUD_DAT) in CORE-CT.
