.. 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.

Many corporations will only hire you if you currently have a job. I don't by any measure agree with the practice, but this is nothing new.

When companies lay off a lot of workers like they did recently the first to go are the highly paid ones and the dead weight. That's not to say everyone that lost their job is dead weight but you're going to have a lot of people amongst the unemployed that aren't exactly the most desirable employees. Add to that you have a lot of people that took jobs they were way under qualified for.

The work force now is filled with the better employees and you can weed out a lot of people you don't want by hiring people that are already employed, downside is you're also precluding a lot of good people.

I don't see the problem with this practice, you're going to have to offer better pay or a job someone really wants to get them to quit their current job. The job they leave has to be filled by someone so ultimately someone that is unemployed is going to get hired.
