COMPTROLLER LEMBO'S STATEMENT ON U.S. SUPREME COURT DECISION IN JANUS V. AFSCME 

"The decision begins the unraveling of rights and protections that hold up Connecticut's middle class hitting hardest our public safety workers, including police and firefighters, our educators and our health care workers, and so many others struggling to earn a living wage," Lembo said. "Workers who once stood strong together, may now be forced to fend for themselves against the shadow of increasingly powerful interests as their salaries, health care and retirement security are slowly chipped away. This shameful decision deepens the divide between the haves and the have-nots, but the fight for working people is far from over."
