Where’s Christie’s Jobs Plan?
(Trenton)- Today, Governor Christie’s administration announced that New Jersey’s unemployment rate for February 2013 was 9.3%. This marks 45 straight months with unemployment at or above 9%, and another month with New Jersey’s unemployment rate well above those of other states in the region as well as the national average. Assemblyman John Wisniewski, Chairman of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee, released the following statement:
“No matter how you spin it, 9.3% unemployment is bad. New Jersey’s unemployment rate has been at or above 9% for Governor Chris Christie’s entire term in office. After 1,165 days in office, Governor Christie still hasn’t proposed a jobs plan. New Jersey needs a governor who will make jobs and our economy a priority on Day 1.”
