RIBLE: JOB GROWTH NUMBERS ENCOURAGING TO BUSINESS
Assembly Republican Conference Leader David Rible, R-Monmouth and Ocean, said Thursday’s jobs report by the U.S. Dept. of Labor showing private sector employment in New Jersey increased by 30,900 in December is a sign of business confidence in New Jersey and that the state is rebounding from the effects of Superstorm Sandy.
The latest data marks the state’s largest single monthly employment gain since job numbers were tracked starting in 1990.
“The news that companies are once again hiring should spur further employment growth in the private sector,” said Rible. “Job creation starts with confidence and optimism by the business community about their opportunities for success. Our pro-business attitude that listens to companies’ concerns is working. Our goal must be to sustain the momentum indicated by these numbers.
“I intend to continue my business roundtable outreach throughout the state this year which has been well-received by companies,” continued Rible. “Exchanging ideas and having a continuous dialogue gives job creators hope and confidence that government is doing all it can to help them.”
Rible said he will announce the next venue for his breakfast roundtable shortly.

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
