This does not many any sense to me.
The taxpayers are paying an arm & a leg for public servants, who many don't even want to bother either following local, state or even federal laws, but let law breakers off with just a slap on the wrist.
That state has become so corrupt, expensive, & yet also very unsafe to live in.
Nathan Hale must be rolling over in his Grave now!
How sad!

What doesn't make sense? It's the same everywhere.

The private sector jobs were taken away...
but no one told the workers to not keep reproducing replacements.

Get some hard numbers for these:
How many commercial and/or industrial jobs existed there in 1970?
How many working age adults existed there in 1970?
How many working age adults today vs how many jobs?

I'd love to! i love the south anyway.
you have NO clue how rude, unethical, unfriendly,
& just plain abusive so many people in Connecticut are.
Speaking of abusive, there are public free newspapers at many retail stores & coffee shops throughout the state of CT.
that is how we find out about these things.
a man in his early early 20s actually shot his own girlfriend in the neck & killed her just because she wanted to move out of their apt. & away from her bf.
He was actually a worker at Shop Rite, a well known grocery store in the Northeast.
When we actually asked a sales clerk @ Shop Rite in Manchester, what store the killer worked in, & he actually said he did not know!
That town is right next door to East Hartford, CT where the young
19 year old woman was shot in the neck & killed by her own boyfriend..
Meanwhile the Mayor of the town, Mayor LeClerc, who is also a woman, declares that East Hartford, CT is a safe & friendly town,
when it certainly is neither.
A woman got run over by a hit & run driver in E. Hartford too,
I believe in a crosswalk.
If you ever try to walk in that town, your safety is at risk,
for there are thousands of drivers in residential areas, who
just insist on running stop signs, & the police in that town do not do nothing about those reckless drivers either.
Talk about scary & dangerous for pedestrians in neighborhoods in East Hartford, Connecticut.

now the people making the MOST money are health insurance co. workers, town employees & public servants, who in many parts of central Connecticut, do NOT serve the public at all, they just harass, verbally abuse & even put the public's life, safety, & happiness at risk!
a EMC, ambulance worker in Meriden actually sexually molested a 21 year old gal who'd fallen & hurt her head during a holiday party!
how sickening Connecticut's public servants have become, many of them, very corrupt & unethical, yet the tax payers r
forced to pay some of the highest property & gas taxes in the nation.
The Nutmeg state has become a costly & dangerous place to live in, or even visit.
Way too many corrupt, dishonest public servants on the payroll in Connecticut now.
That state has become like Mississippi back in the 1950s.
The FBI needs to come back into CT, & start going thru it with a fine tooth comb.
People have the right to their life, liberty & pursuit of happiness, even in Corrupticut

I thought so.

Simplicity is to just bring those jobs back.

Hardly. Simplicity is the diligent application of about $50 worth of latex a year.

Much as the other 70% to 80% of the citizenry have largely managed to do on their own.
You know, the ones who largely have decent jobs and are self sufficient even now?

Um, statistically Connecticut is one of the safest states to live in.
