STUDY: CUT 19,000 PEOPLE FROM STATE'S PAYROLL

A new study released today suggests that the State of New Jersey should slice 19,000 employees from its payroll in order to save nearly a half billion dollars.  The study was conducted by Columbia University’s political science department, and it suggests that the state could trim thousands of jobs without effecting the quality of services afforded to state residents.  The study also says that New Jersey is the strongest candidate among high population states that can afford deep cuts into its payroll.  Governor Chris Christie has suggested cutting only 1,300 jobs from state government.
