"$14,000....That's the amount New Jersey's Department of Labor and Workforce Development said Monday that it would contribute to state employers in any field willing to hire former pharmaceutical workers, provided they add them before Sept. 30.

The $14,000 per person is part of a $3.6 million federal emergency grant, which includes $1 million in on-the-job-training dollars that have to be spent by the September deadline.

New Jersey landed the emergency grant from the U.S. Department of Labor in October 2010, following two years when 3,400 of the 9,600 drug-company jobs lost nationwide disappeared in New Jersey."

Just think if that money were to go to education instead...or the arts...or libraries...

But no, it's going to bolster up the pharmaceutical industry.

New Jersey is the Pharma Capitol of the US, with the highest vaccine rate, and the highest autism rate...surprise, surprise.
