Big Labor Killing New Jersey Property Tax Relief

New Jersey has one of the highest property tax rates in America, so much so that Democrat Gov. Jon Corzin has promoted a tax relief plan. But his plan seems dead in the water because of opposition from — you guessed it — New Jersey labor bosses. The Star Ledger has detailed the various political contributions between the state’s “800-pound gorillas” and members of the state legislature. It’s not a pretty picture.

For Big Labor — forced-dues privilege is a real winner but a loser for independent workers and taxpayers.
