NJPP president Gordon MacInnes released the following statement on the US Bureau of Labor Statistics’ 2012′s annual average unemployment data, which came out this morning.
“New Jersey is still mired in the basement with the 4th highest unemployment rate in the nation. Worse, we’re one of only two states that saw its rate increase from 2011 (from 9.4 percent to 9.5 percent). This should pour ice water on New Jersey’s leaders. The problem is not tax rates – the problem is jobs.”
