Garden State Initiative (GSI) analysis of the state’s monthly jobs report for December 2018 shows the state economy lacks forward momentum. The report showed job losses in December paired with a shrinking workforce over the year.
“This has been a troubling week for New Jersey’s economy,” said Garden State Initiative President Regina M. Egea. “We’ve seen the slow job growth of recent months come to a full stop and state revenue falling well below projections. These two reports send a clear message to the Administration to avoid further policy shifts that would hamper job creation.”
