Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean Jr. and Economic Growth Committee Member Senator Steven Oroho stated the following in response to today’s announcement of New Jersey’s continued private-sector job growth:

“Gaining 10,000 private-sector jobs a month is certainly something to boast, especially in a state where employers pay too much for government and are confined in a straight jacket of regulations,” said Kean (R-Union).

“Another month of steady job gains proves that New   Jersey’s economy is on the right track,” said Oroho (R-Sussex, Warren, Morris), a member of the bipartisan Red Tape Review Commission. “There are certainly more job recovery efforts we need to undertake to enhance our state’s competitiveness in order to regain the hundreds of thousands of jobs lost before Governor Christie took office.”

The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development reported today that private-sector employers added 10,400 jobs in March and the state’s unemployment rate decreased by .3 points to 9 percent.

“It is still too much of a challenge for businesses to grow, expand and develop here,” Kean emphasized. “I long for the day when legislative Democrats will address this issue from its legislative root, by repealing laws that lead to oppressive regulations and red tape. I’m looking forward to seeing our residents living better when job creators are freed from the straight jacket.”
