“We’ve hit the fiscal cliff,” NJBIA President and CEO Michele Siekerka tells Larry Mendte on this edition of Jersey Matters news magazine. Siekerka and the State Chamber of Commerce present Opportunity New Jersey’s reform agenda to make the state more business friendly…

Opportunity NJ (ONJ) is a non-partisan coalition comprised of New Jersey organizations representing employers that employ more than 2.5 million workers.

The Jersey Matters interview took place shortly after the organizations formed the New Jersey Economic Development and Advisory Council to advance an agenda to stimulate job and median wage growth.  The agenda can be found in the ONJ Plan for an Affordable New Jersey.

The council will include members from the Board of Opportunity NJ, who are in the process of engaging leaders and representatives from various business, labor, non-profit, and regional economic development entities throughout the state to join the Council.

    Tom and Michele have presented thoughtful comments that should receive attention. Good job!

  2. Paul says:

    Good luck trying to fight the Marxist Dems and Comrade Murphy.

  3. Richard says:

    Good luck is right. Hyper-taxation has businesses and residents fleeing in droves and revenue free-falling. NJ is doomed courtesy of the Dems.

  4. Ron says:

    They need to get a handle on taxes. If people have more money in their pockets they will buy.

  5. Dave says:

    NJ is the fiscal cliff. Glad NJBIA organization is trying, but sadly the Merph has no incentive to fix this problem. He would have turned back his salary since he doesnt need it anyhow, glad to know its patriotic to pay higher taxes when he will not even reciprocate on that rhetoric. Meanwhile giving freebies away to those(hopeful future voters) who are not even here legitimately. Glad the rest of us and our future generations will be paying for this forever.
