Click here to David Roche 2 hrs · Chicago, IL · Tuesday February 21st State Legislators will attempt to attack Connecticut's construction workers, they will attempt to open Connecticut to out of state contractors who will bring in out of state workers which will put our workers out of jobs, which will drive more people out of Connecticut, accountability will be gone, fair bidding will be gone, safety will be gone. This bill hurts us all, Democrats or Republicans that support this bill or others similar do not care about construction workers, what they care about elections and their special Interest? So go ahead and attempt to pass this bill and take away what we care about and we'll be happy to return the favor. #november2018👎edit

So as they sit in the comfort of Hartford inthe nice comforts of the legislative office bldg. remember who built thatcomfortable building and buy the way when we built it we worked through thecoldest winter days and we sweat on the hottest summer days, so maybe beforethe elected officials decide to take away from workers, think about the effortsthat were giving so you can do your job and that nice building and believe ifyou forget about us, we won't forget about you. #warriorscomeoutandplayere to edit
