For Private Group Home Staff, A Push For Better Pay

Mar 20, 2018

They've gone years without a raise. Now, members of Connecticut's private group home workforce are calling for a boost in support from the state.

With a possible strike looming this April, we speak to Josh Kovner from the Hartford Courant for an update. 

Also this hour: While the opioid epidemic garners national attention, trends in cocaine use and overdose remain largely unseen. We shed light on why that is. 

And finally: combating hunger under Trump. We look at the president's 2019 budget proposal and hear about his administration's plans for a so-called “Harvest Box system." Could it be the next Blue Apron? We find out.
