RE: S-785 (Concerns earned sick leave)
Dear Mr. Williams:
I understand the Senate Labor Committee is scheduled to consider S-785 at its committee meeting on June 29, 2015. Please ensure the members receive a copy of this email and its attachments as testimony I would like to offer for consideration by the committee prior to its vote on the referenced legislation.
I am _________(job title) of ____________ (your firm's name) located in ___________, New Jersey (your town/city). We are a staffing firm that __________________ (a sentence or two about your firm, especially size of firm in terms of employees and length of time in the community).
I respectfully request the Senate Labor Committee vote against approval of this bill. This bill hurts New Jersey's competitiveness and economic recovery by making our state less attractive for private business investment and job growth. Furthermore the state should not (and local cities and towns as well) be in the business of legislating fringe benefit programs for New Jersey business of any size.
Increasing my firm's administrative and operating costs, especially for a staffing firm, has to slow down not only my firm's growth rate but also our clients'.
The New Jersey Staffing Alliance has issued a Position Paper on this legislative proposal (Pat: Please enter the url link to the Position Paper here), joining other business organizations in New Jersey opposing approval. Please consider seriously their comments and concerns. They care about the future of the state and their citizens as well. Remember businesses like mine are the source of growth...so please value the creators of private employment growth in your deliberations.
