Connecticut Added 7,900 Jobs in June

A new report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says Connecticut added 7,900 jobs in June, with seven of the 10 major industry “supersectors” adding jobs. The 10 supersectors are construction, manufacturing, transportation and public utilities, information, financial activities, professional and business services, education and health services, leisure and hospitality, other services, and government.

Since June 2015, Connecticut has increased nonfarm employment by about 18,000 jobs, with nine of the 10 major industry supersectors providing job gains.

Connecticut’s private sector has regained employment at a fast pace, recouping 95 percent of all the private sector positions that were lost during the recession.

Keeping Patients Informed

healthPatients and their families rely on stability and consistency when it comes to long-term care in a nursing facility. This year, I joined my colleagues in passing a bill that aims to keep patients apprised of any upcoming changes when the owners of a long-term facility are planning to terminate services or substantially reduce the number of available beds at a nursing home. Under this legislation, nursing homes will be required to communicate these plans to the Department of Social Services, The Office of Long-Term Care Ombudsman and to all patients and their designated caregivers in order to ensure that patients are aware of the rights and services that are available to them.
