NJBIA's Public Policy Forum: The Road to Recovery REGISTER

Christopher Emigholz, NJBIA Vice President of Government Affairs

In a recent interview on NJ Spotlight News’ Business Beat program, NJBIA Vice President of Government Affairs Christopher Emigholz made the case for the state’s proposed $44.8 billion budget to make “pro-growth” investments on workforce development programs.

Emigholz told NJ Spotlight News’ Rhonda Schaffler that funding for workforce development programs offered by county colleges should be prioritized, especially now when so many workers have lost their jobs during the pandemic and need retraining to secure future employment.

“Our county colleges are institutions spread out throughout the state – I think there is a campus within 20 or 30 minutes of every single New Jerseyan – and they do fantastic work preparing people for the economy,” Emigholz said.
