Tell Your Legislator: Governor Murphy’s Veto Doesn’t Go Far Enough
New Jersey jobs are STILL AT RISK. Governor Murphy issued a conditional veto of S511/A1474—legislation that will effectively eliminate temporary and temporary-to-permanent staffing as a feasible option for most employers and workers. Unfortunately, changes contained in the conditional veto are not enough, and passage of the conditional veto would cause more harm than good for New Jersey temporary workers.
We support efforts to protect temporary workers from individuals who would take advantage of them, but the bill as written—even with the changes the governor has requested—harms individuals re-entering the workforce and non-traditional workers whose circumstances require different types of work opportunities. As written, it will destroy jobs and limit opportunity for thousands of New Jerseyans, including the long-term unemployed, the under-employed, veterans, single mothers, those who have been previously incarcerated, and others who are too often overlooked.
We have one more chance to stop this harmful legislation from killing thousands of critical temporary jobs in New Jersey. Ask your state legislators to REJECT the governor’s conditional veto and work with their colleagues to create new legislation that strikes the right balance for workers and businesses alike.
