State Employee Union Agreement Is Going to Break the Engine of State Government

β€œIt used to be that General Electric would make things in Connecticut and people would complain about the taxes in Massachusetts. Now General Electric is making things in Massachusetts and people are complaining about the taxes in Connecticut, and under this deal, taxes are going to skyrocket. . . . The state employee leaders are leading their workers in the wrong direction. This deal is going to break the engine that feeds them. It is going to break our government.” – Sen. Art Linares.
