I love this company. Not only have they been a CT icon for generations, it has chosen to stay in CT despite high taxes and costs of operating here. Moving jobs here is something most companies are not doing. Another little known tidbit, it is still paying dividends to its shareholders as it has consistently done since 1934.

This article is absolute bull. They laid off more workers today. Just like when the same article ran in the Bristol Press a few weeks ago, they laid off more workers that day as well.
