Gov. Murphy Signs 19 Bills Into Law, Mandates School Recess In NJ | Patch

Saturday, August 11, 2018

Unemployment compensation in labor disputesA bill sponsored by Senate Labor Committee Vice Chair Joseph F. Vitale and Sen. Vin Gopal to permit individuals who are unemployed because of a labor dispute to collect unemployment compensation under certain circumstances is now law after being signed by the governor.The new law, S-1046, will allow unemployment compensation during a labor dispute if it was caused by the failure of an employer to comply with an agreement or existing labor laws. It specifies that if a dispute is caused by any other reason, unemployment compensation would not be available for the first 30 days of unemployment.The bill outlines that a waiting period would not apply if the employer hires a permanent replacement worker and that any hired replacement workers would be presumed to be permanent unless the employer certifies in writing that the unemployed individual would be able to return to their position when the labor dispute ends.”It’s been long recognized that workers’ rights are human rights and that it is just and fair to uphold workers as they struggle to better their working conditions, compensation and benefits,” said Vitale, D-Middlesex. “This bill provides the framework needed to protect New Jersey’s workers from financial hardship while they exercise their right to fight for safe and fair working conditions.”

The Hypocrisy of the Heritage Foundation

The U.S. is fighting separate wars, whatever the government chooses to call them, in some half dozen nations all at the same time: some hot, some cold, some lukewarm. We have roughly 800 foreign military bases in over 100 different countries. Since World War II our country has bombed the following nations: China 1945-46, Korea 1950-53, China 1950-53, Guatemala 1954, Indonesia 1958, Cuba 1959-60, Guatemala 1960, Belgian Congo 1964, Guatemala 1964, Dominican Republic 1965-66, Peru 1965, Laos 1964-73, Vietnam 1961-73, Cambodia 1969-70, Guatemala 1967-69, Lebanon 1982-84, Grenada 1983-84, Libya 1986, El Salvador 1981-92, Nicaragua 1981-90, Iran 1987-88, Libya 1989, Panama 1989-90, Iraq 1991, Kuwait 1991, Somalia 1992-94, Bosnia 1995, Iran 1998, Sudan 1998, Afghanistan 1998, Yugoslavia – Serbia 1999, Afghanistan 2001, Libya 2011.This is not a national defense, it is a national offense.

Personal Finance Expert Ric Edelman Reveals Solution to the Social Security Crisis

Friday, July 27, 2018

Based on the principle of compound growth, the T.R.U.S.T. Fund for America calls for the government to set aside a one-time amount of $7,000 for each child born in the United States, and to repeat this annually for the next 35 years. The money would be placed in an investment portfolio determined by an expert panel appointed by the president and Congress. After 35 years, the government would receive back its initial outlay, plus inflation, and use the proceeds to fund the program for children born during the next 35-year cycle.
