The Connecticut Business and Industry Association is promising to fight Governor Dannel Malloy's proposed increase in the state minimum wage. Malloy wants to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour by 2017, which would make it the highest in the nation.

The CBIA voiced its opposition on Monday to the wage hike, saying it will reduce hiring into entry-level jobs. The CBIA's position on minimum wage is part of its broader legislative agenda, which it released on Monday.
