New Jersey is facing an $800 million budget shortfall; and the Governor wants to pay for it with your pension. New Jersey has a revenue problem but Governor Christie would rather cut payments to the pension fund and use one shot gimmicks to mend NOT fix the problem of continued revenue short falls.
As State budget negotiations heat up, and with Governor Christie’s continued attacks on public employees, we need you to join us in Trenton for a lobby day to tell legislators to put working families first and stop using budget gimmicks and short term fixes.
