Our Community Budget Forum will focus on Connecticut’s labor market and the continued impact our tax system has on inequities in the state, and we’ll feature a panel discussion on how to put more money in the hands of low- and middle-income families, continuing the momentum toward economic justice. Specifically, we are delighted to be joined by
Rob Baril, SEIU 1199NE President;
Ryan Brown, Bridgeport Public Schools teacher;
Reverend Josh Pawelek, Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Society; and
Shelta Wilson, family child care educator, for this year’s discussion!
These panelists will discuss how to create a strong economy and workforce through increasing wages, providing sufficient funding to public sector jobs, strengthening worker power, and providing tax credits for hardworking families.
