Oliver, Greenwald, Prieto, Wisniewski, Wagner, DeAngelo & Moriarty ‘Back to Work NJ’ Job Creation & Training Program Approved by Assembly

Revised Version of Bill Seeks to Help Out-of-Work Residents Find Jobs as Part of Assembly Democratic Job Creation Effort

(TRENTON) – Renewed Assembly Democratic legislation to create the Back to Work NJ job creation and training program was approved Monday by the Assembly as a key part of the Assembly Democratic job creation initiative.

The Assembly Democratic legislation is sponsored by Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver, Majority Leader Lou Greenwald, Budget Chairman Vincent Prieto, Deputy Speaker John Wisniewski, Connie Wagner, Wayne DeAngelo and Paul Moriarty.

"Let’s do the right thing for our state and put New Jerseyans back-to-work,” said Oliver (D-Essex/Passaic). "This program has proven successful elsewhere, which is why I remain committed to seeing this bill signed into law and am ready to work with anyone to see that it happens. This program will allow out-of-work New Jerseyans to develop the skills to get back in the workforce, but it will also help our businesses find and develop new workers. It’s a true win-win for everyone..."
