Dan Malloy on Jobs

 

 


Pushed bill to protect advanced manufacturing jobs

This past September, the Connecticut General Assembly met in a special session, to take historic action in support of our state's economy and our incredible workforce. The legislation you voted to support--and that I signed into law--protected 8,000 jobs at Sikorsky Aircraft. Equally importantly, it shored up thousands more jobs up and down Sikorsky's supply chain, and across every corner of our great state. It nearly doubled their spending with local suppliers to almost $700 million per year over the next decade and beyond.

In recent years we've secured similar investments from United Technologies and Electric Boat. Taken together, these agreements cement our leadership in advanced manufacturing around the globe. Together we've protected Connecticut's aerospace and defense industries for a generation and likely beyond. We've given them predictability.

We created 9,400 new, private sector jobs in the last year

A little more than a year ago, on the day I was sworn in as your Governor, I said we had to [address the financial crisis] while focusing simultaneously on job creation; that by focusing on those things, we would stabilize the state's finances. I said that was critical if we wanted the private sector to do what it does best: create jobs.

One year later, it turns out that by taking that less-traveled road we have passed through the crucible of that crisis. In the process, we've brought positive, far-reaching, meaningful, and systemic change to Hartford.

First and foremost, we grew jobs in Connecticut last year--9,400 new, private sector jobs were created, the first year of job growth since 2008.

The best evidence of the change we've brought to Hartford can be found in some of the arguments we've been having around here lately. Instead of arguing over how much more money state employee contracts will cost taxpayers, we're arguing over how much money those revised contracts will save.
