In New Jersey, you have to be paid for not getting sick, the governor said.
Along with an exhorbitant salary, our police chief had been looking forward to fleecing our taxpayers one last time, and he was planning on doing it with a blessing from some of our more entrenched Township Committee members that stood alongside The Governor yesterday.
Efforts have been made to curtail the sick-time payouts. Legislators, acting on an initial proposal by the governor, passed a bill to cap payouts but Christie is demanding an all out ban.
The sick-time payouts, he said, were an example of why New Jersey is “out of control.”
I guess he can use our police chief as a prime example of why these payouts need to be stopped, whether they are legitimate, and especially when they are not.
