Greenstein Statement On Veto Of Back To Work New Jersey Bill

TRENTON –Senator Linda R. Greenstein (D-Middlesex/ Mercer) issued the following statement today regarding the Governor’s veto of S-3080/A-4332, the “Back to Work NJ” bill:

“I am disappointed that the ‘Back to Work NJ’ bill will not become law at this time and that many New Jersey businesses who are looking to expand their workforces, but may be unable to afford the on-the-job-training needed to bring on new employees, will not be able to participate in this program – a program which has proved effective in other states at creating jobs and putting their residents back to work.

“However, I pledge to continue to work for New Jersey’s unemployed residents who are struggling to find a job and a means to self-sufficiency for themselves and their families.

“While this innovative program would have gone a long way to providing a path to employment for unemployed and underemployed state residents, I look forward to working with my colleagues in the Legislature to provide relief for hard-hit families in the upcoming legislative session.”
