NHR editorial on Pratt & Whitney plant closing

From the NHRs editor:

The decision by Pratt & Whitney to close two state plants and throw some 1,000 workers onto the unemployment lines only adds to the pain of a recession in which Connecticut has already lost 79,100 jobs. With decisions such as Pratt’s, economists project a loss of some 100,000 state jobs before Connecticut’s job numbers start to grow again.

I think we need to improve the business climate in CT. Just last week, Forbes ranked CT 35th (among the 50 states) for doing business. That included a rank of 45 for business costs.
