Want to know how all this came to pass? Read on for a short write-up from Doug Wade himself, as to how he got to be intimately involved in discussion and meet the President.
“I attended a roundtable event in Hartford on Monday, February 24 with Senator Richard Blumenthal, Senator Christopher Murphy and the U.S. Secretary of Labor; Thomas Perez to discuss the minimum wage increase that is being proposed. Two days later, I received a phone call from the White House inviting me to attend the President’s visit to Hartford. I’ve been told that I will meet the President before he gives his speech. I’ve been told that the President will include a story about Wade’s Dairy and my efforts to push for a minimum wage increase in his speech.”
