HARTFORD, Conn. – Connecticut’s public sector employee unions took a beating Sunday during a forum at the Greenwich Public Library.
“The most important way we can get our hands around slowing the spending in our state is by reforming public sector compensation,” Carol Platt Liebau, president of the Yankee Institute for Public Policy, said to a smattering of applause from the more than 200 gathered for the event.
The forum was sponsored by the Greenwich Economic Advisory Committee, but the Yankee Institute helped put together the panel that was moderated by Larry Kudlow, an economist and CNBC commentator. Representatives of labor weren’t in attendance and weren’t on the panel.
