Connecticut loses a bigger percentage of its young workers than other state in the country. Some say that’s because the cost of living here is 25% higher than the national average and entry level salaries at Connecticut companies haven’t kept up.
Today on the program, a look at part of the problem: housing costs. Affordable housing is in short supply in Connecticut’s population centers and many developers and legislators say the conditions just aren’t right to do much about it.
