Connecticut Layoffs Could Happen Next Week

Layoff notices are expected to go out  to more than a thousand Connecticut state employees next week if no union  concession deal is reached.  Governor  Malloy's budget proposal calls for  700-million-dollars in union givebacks.  

If no agreement is reached,  Malloy plans to lay off more than four-thousand state employees, which  would save the state 400-million-dollars a year.  

Lawmakers and the  governor are working to close a structural deficit of around  two-billion-dollars in the upcoming fiscal year.

According to the latest figures, the state is almost 5 point 3 billion dollars short.
