Singleton, Conaway, Andrzejczak, Mazzeo, Garcia and Mosquera Bill Would Require Development of “Manufacturing Career Pathway”
An Assembly panel on Monday approved legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Troy Singleton, Herb Conaway, Jr., M.D., Bob Adrzejczak, Vince Mazzeo, Carmelo G. Garcia and Gabriela Mosquera to help prepare today’s generation to lead a manufacturing renaissance in New Jersey.
“The manufacturing industry has always been the embodiment of the American ideal that if you work hard and play by the rules, you can provide for your family today and for their brighter future tomorrow,” said Singleton (D-Burlington). “Workers in manufacturing jobs earn 22 percent more in annual pay and benefits than the average worker in other industries, which translates into $40,000 more than other non-farm employees in New Jersey. We need to refocus our attention on the enormous potential of this industry and how we can prepare our residents to lead it.”
