“It would be nice if it were true,” said Edward Deak, an economics professor at Fairfield University, “but the May numbers were particularly good-looking for Connecticut. Then you look into June, and there were 4,800 jobs lost.” Throw in possible job losses at Pratt & Whitney and the Obama administration’s move to cease production of additional F-22 fighter jets, Deak said, “and we’re looking at a substantial upheaval in production and employment in the Hartford area.”
