Obama at CCSU: Economy Must Work ‘For All of Us’

By Mark Pazniokas

New Britain – President Barack Obama today told a pep-rally audience of local college students and politicians from across New England that his campaign for a $10.10 minimum wage was central to a broader call to address economic inequality in the United States. Image

“It is a central task for all of us to build an economy that works for all of us, not just for some,” Obama said, addressing about 3,000 in Detrick Gymnasium at Central Connecticut State University
