NJBIA Statement on Jobs NJ Plan
NJBIA President & CEO Michele N. Siekerka, Esq. issued the following statement regarding Gov. Phil Murphy’s announcement today about the Jobs NJ plan.
“NJBIA is very encouraged by the mission in the Jobs NJ plan announced today, as it aligns with much of the priorities and recommendations found in our Postsecondary Education Task Force report and the postsecondary work that we continue today.
“Matching talent to available jobs through more targeted educational initiatives and providing the greatest opportunities to provide students training for those careers and access to those jobs are critical for employers to succeed and grow in New Jersey.
“NJBIA appreciates the opportunity to participate in some of the subcommittees that contributed to this plan and we stand at the ready to work with Governor Murphy’s administration to bring it to action in a fiscally responsible manner.”
