A labor leader who was a harsh critic of Gov. Chris Christie is praising Gov. Phil Murphy’s proposed state budget.
“Governor Murphy did not disappoint. This Governor was elected projecting a bold and progressive vision for New Jersey that meets the State’s obligations to all workers and to all working families,” said Communications Workers of America New Jersey state director Hetty Rosenstein. “Governor Murphy is restoring the funding and support that existed before Chris Christie nearly destroyed our state’s economy by smashing workers and giving away 8 billion in revenue to millionaires. This is a good first budget.”
