As the New Jersey Assembly considers legislation to require the state’s public workers to pay more for benefits and pensions, protesters are rallying in Trenton to stop the measure.
A permit for 25,000 protesters has been issued, the Associated Press reports, for what is the third rally in eight days. Local clergy held a morning vigil, and teachers, firefighters and other public workers are expected to spend the day protesting.
A new protester joins today’s rally. The “soul of the Democratic party” showed up in a hearse.
