In a statement, State Representative Mike D’Agostino (D-Hamden) said, in part, “Every day, our personal care attendants put the needs of their clients ahead of their own. They’re there to lend a helping hand to their clients during their times of need, and they treat and love them as if they are their own family. But it’s time for us to take care of these workers.”
