Unemployment calculation bill would reform CT’s compensation system

I am a Connecticut employer who has kept his family business here despite the oppressive and stifling atmosphere including overwhelming taxes and regulations. I have been outraged at Connecticut’s Federal Unemployment Tax Act tax on all employers because of the state government’s inability to responsibly manage our federal loan, and the illegality of a tax on businesses who do not vote or have a say in government. I now see a wonderful opportunity for the state to correct its course by reforming Connecticut’s unemployment compensation system like the states surrounding us have done.
