NJ Caucus

On Tuesday, August 14, 2018 SPEX CertiPrep hosted the New Jersey Bipartisan Legislative Manufacturing Caucus Hearing.

NJMEP has been working closely with the NJ Legislative Manufacturing Caucus in an effort to help NJ manufacturers. This bipartisan group, led by Senators Gopal and Oroho, has already met multiple times, but their concentration had not been on NJ manufacturers. This hearing represents a change - and - is why NJMEP pushed to have it held at a manufacturer's facility.

Attendees of the hearing included New Jersey legislators and representatives from 35 companies throughout New Jersey.

Topics that were discussed included:

  • Aluminum and steel tariffs
  • Increased minimum wage proposal
  • Labor shortages
  • Career opportunities and trades
