TRENTON – Senate President Steve Sweeney issued the following statement today regarding New Jersey’s unemployment rate remaining essentially unchanged:
“We are no doubt going to hear glowing reviews from the administration on these latest figures of failure. The truth remains: three years later and New Jersey’s unemployed are no better off under this governor.
“Enough is enough already. When is the governor going to come up with any kind of plan to put people in this state back to work?
