.. and I had hopes for Christie.
Some years ago NJ introduced a millionaires tax and surprise, surprise, 60Bn left the state and so now they are trying to get that back by giving tax break. Once you have left it is tough to get them back and of course they have failed. So now they have to be careful not to over regulate businesses like CA where 64 major corporations left in the first quarter. So do you think they have learned anything? Anything for a few cheap votes and Christie is no better.
Employers in New Jersey can no longer exclude unemployed people when they advertise job vacancies.
Legislation barring the practice was recently signed into law by Gov. Chris Christie, who had conditionally vetoed an earlier version of the measure. Those who don't comply will face fines of up to $1,000 for the first offense and $5,000 for subsequent offenses. The bill prohibits employers from publishing job advertisements in print or online that state unemployed individuals can't apply for the position. Proponents say the measure may be the first of its kind in the United States.
The initial version of the bill was passed by the state Senate and Assembly in November. But Christie conditionally vetoed it, saying parts were too vague and the proposed penalties were too high.
If they wanted unemployed (cheap) labor they would ask for them. Idiots. No intelligent life down there either. That's Christie off my President list.
