Pending appeals, a Pennsylvania judge has upheld a new lawin that state that would require all voters to show a current photo I.D. Although they appear to be doing nothing more than gathering dust, there are two bills in the New Jersey legislature that would enact the very same law in the Garden State and that has some Democratic lawmakers very concerned.
Preliminary numbers released today by the State Department of Labor and Workforce Development show that employment in New Jersey shifted lower in July and the unemployment rate edged upward. New Jersey’s jobless rate moved up in July, by 0.2 percentage point, to 9.8%, still above the national rate, which also edged up, by 0.1, to 8.3% in July.
“After months of upward movement in the Garden State Quality of Life Index, we have seen a slight drop that seems to be caused mainly by economic and security concerns,” says Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute.
Tomorrow, the state will release the unemployment figures for July. New Jersey’s jobless rate has outpaced the national average for months and analysts expect that to be the case for last month as well.
