More good news . dont worry the biggest emploer in CT is hiring.
The unemployment office has many openings for all of us.
Maybe when 98 percent of the popuation is laid off these companies will realize that lower profits for a while is better then NOBODY buying what you have to offer.

Its sad to hear, unlike those who demand and cheer at the prospects of hard working public employees this is one who feels its terrible to know these people will suffer and face hardship.

These big companies act shamefully, paying senior management outrageous salaries then having the nerve to blame the lowly worker bees. Instead of looking to break even or even dip lightly into retained earnings they will gladly can workers so they can meet Wall Street analyst estimates so they can qualify for their bonuses.
