Middlesex Health to Raise Minimum Wage to $15

Press Release, February 12, 2019

MIDDLETOWN — On March 24, Middlesex Health will increase its minimum wage to $15 an hour.

Across the country, there is ongoing debate about whether minimum wage should be increased to help employees make ends meet. In Connecticut, state lawmakers are preparing to discuss this issue.

Middlesex Health isn’t waiting to act. It will lead by example.

“We are pleased to make this pay adjustment,” says Middlesex Health President and CEO Vincent G. Capece, Jr. “It takes a team to accomplish our goals and to meet our mission. Middlesex Health’s success is a direct result of every employee’s hard work and dedication.”

To coincide with its minimum wage increase, Middlesex Health will hold a job fair for environmental service (custodial service) and dietary aide (food service) jobs on February 21 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The fair will be held in the Randy A. Goodwin, MD Conference Center at Middlesex Hospital, 28 Crescent Street.

Anyone interested in attending the job fair should call 203-859-3312 to reserve an interview time. Walk-ins are also welcome.

“Everyone has an important role to play at Middlesex Health, and we are always excited to welcome new members to our team,” Capece says.
