At UConn: Permanent Commission on the Status of Women (PCSW) Public Hearing, Wednesday, February 27, 2008

PCSW Public Hearing Topic: Getting To A Better Tomorrow: Economic And Financial Security — Wednesday, February 27, 2008

A large number of Connecticut families are finding that their costs are rising faster than their wages. A recent report, Where Connecticut Stands, commissioned by the PCSW stated that 19%, or one-in-five Connecticut households lacks enough money to cover basic living expenses. The PCSW is hosting a Public Hearing to hear concerns on issues raised in the report. These include job security, education and training, and community growth and business development—big and small, family financial stability, family friendly workplaces, and flex, sick and vacation time. The report is available on the PCSW’s website at http://www.cga.ct.gov/pcsw.If you are interested in these issues, please join us and have your voice heard. For more information, call the PCSW at 860.240.8300 or email at pcsw@cga.ct.gov. Co-sponsors of this Public Hearing as of this writing: Any interested individuals may testify by submitting oral and/or written or electronic testimony.
