The program has become the No. 1 need of the state Department of Economic and Community Development, and is one of a few measures expected to support organizations, Gov. Ned Lamont told entrepreneurs and supervisors Thursday.
“I experienced the 2008-2009 freefall, and this is more awful,” Lamont said during a telephone call with in excess of 2,000 entrepreneurs and directors in the state. “In an ordinary downturn, we’ll most likely have 5,000 joblessness asserts in seven days. We had 12,000 just yesterday.”
