On behalf of the New Jersey AARP State Office staff and volunteers, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald for his leadership on the issue of earned paid sick leave. Considering that over half of AARP members still work either half or full time, earned sick leave is a highly relevant issue for the community.
It goes without saying that the membership of AARP is greatly appreciative of Assemblyman Greenwald for lending his voice in such a worthy matter.
Furthermore, the Assembly Majority Leader and his colleague, Assemblywoman Lampitt, have sponsored the Caregivers Tax Credit, which could provide needed relief for those who unselfishly commit countless hours and resources in order to care for a loved one. This, as well, is deserving of recognition and kudos. Thank you both.
