Call center jobs are being sent overseas from New Jersey, eliminating positions that support hard-working American families. And – believe it or not! – certain corporations are getting “job creation” tax breaks from the state Economic Development Authority as a result.
If the bills are enacted, corporations can still send call center jobs overseas. However, the companies simply will not be rewarded with New Jersey tax breaks for sending away the jobs.
S-1780, sponsored by Senators Patrick J. Diegnan Jr. (D-18) and Shirley K. Turner (D-15), and A-1992, sponsored by Assembly members Shavonda E. Sumter (D-35), Daniel R. Benson (D-14), Valerie Vainieri Huttle (D-37), Eric Houghtaling (D-11) and Benjie E. Wimberly (D-35), support call center workers.
