Poverty Increase in Connecticut
IncSmart Connecticut (Small Business and Startups) - Poverty increased in Connecticut for the year 2018.  Connecticut is the only state in the union where poverty did not decline according to the US Census Bureau.  The two biggest factors for the increase are affordable housing and income.  Ten percent of Connecticut residents live in poverty.  While Connecticut is one of the wealthiest states per capita, Hartford in close to bankruptcy.  

The poverty rate stands at 10.2% and is still one the lowest rate in America, but the numbers are rising.  Connecticut is increasing the minimum  wage from $10.10 to $11.00 in October, and $15 an hour by  2023.  Connecticut's progressive income tax increased have proved to be disastrous for the state.  The taxes have also caused a shrinking labor force.  There is also a new group of taxes coming into play.  From prepared foods to digital downloads, the Connecticut middle class is being taxed out of existence.
