All statements involving Lou Greenwald

"Right now one of our highest job growth sectors is Leisure and Hospitality. We've added jobs that mostly fall within the restaurant and bar sector industry. These are not high-paying jobs, as the U.S. Department of Labor estimates this is an industry sector with the lowest average wages and the lowest proportion of its workforce earning minimum or subminimum wage jobs."

Says "about 100,000 kids in this country leave their home state and go to another state to be educated. Out of that 100,000 young people, 30,000 of them are from New Jersey, by far the largest amount."

Says raising the state income tax rate on millionaires to offset property taxes for other residents is "not a tax increase. It's a tax shift."

Says "the money is in the budget" to give a tax break to "everyone," including people making more than $1 million.

"In 2011, NJ economy ranked 47th--at the bottom with Alabama, Mississippi & Wyoming. Under Christie, NJ is falling behind."

New Jersey has "the highest property taxes in the nation and not by a little. They are the highest property taxes in the nation, more than double the national average."

"Under this tax cut, middle-class families don't save enough for a week's worth of groceries, while millionaires save enough to go on an exotic vacation."

Because Gov. Chris Christie vetoed a 30-bill job creation package, "New Jersey ranks 50th in the nation in job creation."
