EB is a tricky one. It gets all kinds of Govt monies that we may not really need to build these subs, but I am glad the jobs are in CT.

my father in law works there, so in a way I directly benefit from all of this.

this is a big jump in employment. the only problem is that there is definately a chance we will lose all these jobs in 3 years or so if the program is not continued, of if some contract is not extended, or if some congressperson objects, or.....

We'll take what we can get, it's for now a huge boost for southeast CT.

Just remember, a few years back we nearly lost the Sub base and this.

The Navy, Electric Boat, and all the related industries/businesses are critical to not only the economy of Southeastern Connecticut, but the state as a whole, as well as Rhode Island. If the Subbase was to close through BRAC it would be devastating, imagine anywhere upwards of 40,000 people suddenly gone. Tax collection, employment, consumers, gone.. Say what you want about government waste, but this is something you don't want to leave your backyard. Casinos jobs do not replace skilled industry, ask anyone from SE Conn.
