AFP-CT State Director JR Romano Testifies Against Forced Small Business Unionization

March 13, 2012

Hartford CT- Americans for Prosperity-Connecticut (AFP-CT) State Director, JR Romano, will testify today on two executive orders issued by Governor Malloy last fall impacting child care workers and home care attendants in state funded programs.

“It is unfortunate that Governor Malloy has chosen to put politics before people once again by forcing unionization upon small business owners in this state who are charged with the care of our children and elderly populations,” said JR Romano, State Director AFP-CT. “While I am sure that the SEIU is pleased with these orders providing them with additional members and their dues, what about the PCAs and child care workers and the people they care for?”

A lawsuit alleging that Governor Malloy overstepped his executive branch authorities in issuing Executive Orders 9 and 10 is pending.

“Small business owners are the core of our economy,” added Romano. “To force unionization upon a population that did not ask for it is an overreach of authority. Now these care workers, who are an integral part of so many lives, will have their wages lowered as a result of union dues being deducted. Who is that helping except the unions that collect the dues?”
