Legislation would allow persons with drug convictions to participate in Work First New Jersey; expand access to job training to help families become self-sufficient
Legislation sponsored by Senator Robert Singer (R-Monmouth, Ocean) to expand access to job training programs for those with drug convictions to prevent recidivism has been approved by the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee.
“For those who have been convicted of a drug crime, the road to recovery is long, treacherous and nearly impossible to traverse without help,” Senator Singer said. “Expanding access to job training and workforce education goes a long way to helping all families in need – not just some – become self-sufficient without having to rely on general assistance.”
