SMALL BUSINESS AND GOVERNOR MALLOY FINALLY AGREE ON SOMETHING: BOTH ARE DISAPPOINTEDUndermining the economic confidence that businesses of any size have in this state is the surest way to stifle job growth and send the economy into a tail spin.
Prevailing Wage MandateFight against legislation to extend the costly prevailing wage mandate to private construction projects. While Connecticut’s prevailing wage law makes public construction bidding more complicated for small contractors, it also makes these projects more costly for taxpayers. Some advocates are trying to expand the state’s prevailing wage law to private projects as well. NFIB will stand opposed to any further expansion of the prevailing wage mandate, but especially against any intrusion into the private sector.
