To the Editor:
I remember my parents discussing the reasons why they came to the U.S.A. and had chosen Connecticut as the place to build their lives. It meant “Welcome” signs for businesses and the ability to find work. Residents were able to support their families, build a nest egg and save money for their children’s’ college funds and retirement. My dad had so much work that he referred his customers to family or friends so they could share the workload. Connecticut attracted factories and corporations rather than forcing them to move or close.
