HARTFORD — Nannies, maids, gardeners, personal chefs, chauffeurs and caregivers for the elderly are asking Connecticut to change labor laws to require that they be paid at least the minimum wage.
Currently, domestic workers and farm workers are excluded from federal laws that established the right to a minimum wage and to overtime.
. . .
Natalacia Tracy, a leader in getting Massachusetts to pass such a law, said Tuesday it's time for Connecticut to become the fifth state to expand protections for domestic workers.
