Our fight to stop a State Shutdown continues! If the legislature does not pass a budget by June 30th, the State is at risk of a shutdown for the third year in a row. Right now, there are two visions of what happens in this year’s state budget. There is Governor Murphy’s proposed budget that makes investments in public education and services, and funds public worker pension and our state employee contract while asking millionaires to pay their fair share in taxes. Then there is Sweeney’s “Path to Progress” report that calls for ending the current public worker pension system for state, county and municipal government employees and shifting billions of dollars of healthcare costs on to workers— all while protecting billions of dollars of tax cuts for the super wealthy and corporations.
Our fight to stop Sweeney’s attacks on workers and for a fair budget that includes a millionaires tax starts now!
