Statement from CWA State Director Hetty Rosenstein on Millionaires Tax Announcement

Please find a statement below from CWA NJ State Director Hetty Rosenstein regarding the great win for New Jersey with today’s announcement of the Millionaires Tax. If you have any questions or need anything else, please let me know:

“CWA has supported a restoration of the tax on millionaires for many years.  We applaud Governor Phil Murphy for steadfastly maintaining his commitment to this progressive approach to raising revenue and funding services. It has been a long and hard road to get to a Millionaires Tax. And we’re grateful to our Governor, the dozens of Legislators who’ve stood up for this, Senate President Steve Sweeney and particularly Speaker Craig Coughlin for bridging the final gap. We’re pleased that an agreement has been reached with Legislative leadership. And we remain hopeful that this means there will soon be an agreement on the Budget that meets New Jersey’s need to continue funding essential services during a global pandemic, maintain the promise of retirement security, and support our shared goals to narrow income inequality and promote racial, economic and social justice. CWA’s thousands of committed essential workers – and all the New Jersey families bearing the brunt of these incredibly challenging times – deserve nothing less.”
