Small businesses are increasingly becoming targets of scammers. One of the best ways to keep your business and customer base safe is to stay informed about the different techniques used by people who try to take advantage of small companies. This is especially important for New England small businesses, since many of the states in the Northeast, including Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont and Maine, are among states where the most small businesses are created (per capita).
Men and women across Connecticut work hard to build a secure future for themselves and their families, but too many have no access to workplace retirement saving options. Soon, those employees will have a path to a secure financial retirement through automatic payroll deductions.

Connecticut’s manufacturing industry will need an estimated 25,000 to 35,000 new skilled workers for the state’s 4,100 manufacturing companies in the next two decades. Connecticut state colleges and universities, private colleges, and the state’s comprehensive and technical high schools have done a great job of introducing the varied and high-tech career opportunities available to students in the manufacturing industry. However, the growing demand for qualified workers to meet the resurgent manufacturing industry is outpacing the supply, which has created an increasing need for instructors. AARP Connecticut has begun assisting schools in identifying and recruiting retired manufacturers who might consider applying their real world skills in the classroom.
