Assurance Wireless Connecticut
Like most of the country, things seems to be turning around in Connecticut. The unemployment rate has been falling steadily and it lags the national rate. Not all of the news is good, however. While the rate of those not having jobs is decreasing, paradoxically the state itself has recently lost jobs. All told, there is still more work to be done. “The fact remains that if you don’t have a job, the unemployment rate is basically 100 percent”, the Connecticut governor said recently.
For those who need a bit of assistance, Assurance Wireless is up and operating in Connecticut. Even though Connecticut doesn’t allows its citizens to qualify for free cell phones on the basis on income, it does allow the participants of several government-programs, more than the average state.
