TRENTON, N.J. – New Jersey is almost reopened with a glaring exception: unemployment and career service offices. Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick is calling for the immediate reopening of the offices with extended hours to resolve outstanding unemployment claims and match people out of work with available job opportunities.
“Thousands of residents are still struggling to receive their unemployment benefits and businesses across New Jersey cannot fill open positions,” said Bramnick (R-Union). “One-stop career centers were created to help resolve these issues, but they are shut down when they are needed most. If it is safe for bars and restaurants to operate at full capacity, there is no excuse for unemployment and career services offices to be closed. Governor Phil Murphy needs to reopen one-stop career centers immediately.”coron
