The Governors of New Jersey and Pennsylvania Have Announced a Joint Task Group to “strengthen Enforcement of Labor Laws.”

The governors of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, Phil Murphy and Josh Shapiro, said that the two states would work together to police labor laws in the neighboring states.

The Democrats announced a new task group that will work across state lines to stop wage theft and misclassification of workers.

Murphy said, “If you’re a bad contractor, we’ll either get you to follow the rules or put you out of business, period.”

Shapiro said that the states would work together to make union rights stronger and put money into new apprenticeships for union workers.

Phil Murphy and Shapiro told people in Philadelphia about the task force at a meeting of the Finishing Trades Institute.

“My budget, which I proposed a few months ago and that lawmakers are now thinking about, invests in making sure we bring [vocational and technical education and training] back into our classrooms, invests in union apprentices, and does our best to connect the jobs of today and tomorrow,” Shapiro said.

Some trades, like making iron and building, have trouble finding enough workers. Murphy and Shapiro have both said in the past that they are in favor of trade and technical education and training.

The leaders said they want this partnership to be a model for the whole country, and they are trying to get other nearby states to join in.

Rob Asaro-Angelo, who is the commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development, and Nancy Walker, who is the acting secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry, have been put in charge of the task group by their respective states.
