These are good jobs with wages and benefits that are among the best in the nation."
"AT&T's goal of hiring more than 60 people in Connecticut underscores the importance of creating a climate that helps business of all types and sizes succeed," said Joan McDonald, commissioner of the state Department of Economic and Community Development.
