Camden City Layoffs


New Jersey has a major budget deficit, and many Jersey cities have been cutting back expenses to balance the difference. For many cities, including Camden, this means cutting city employees. several hundred Camden City employees have been laid off recently, including over 150 cops and over 60 firefighters. In a city with so many problems, a reduction in any type of government services only makes matters worse. When push comes to shove and budgets are cut, it seems like its the poor that suffer the most.
