N.J. Republican leader Jay Webber is a heartless elitist

N.J. Republican leader Jay Webber is a heartless elitist
BY PAUL MORIARTY
COMMENTARY

I have an apology to make. Recently, I compared one of New Jersey's highest ranking Republicans, Assemblyman Jay Webber, to a heartless elitist.

That was wrong, and I apologize — to heartless elitists!

Let me explain how I can espouse such a seemingly disrespectful and openly hostile view.

If you are unemployed, know someone that is unemployed or fear that you may soon become unemployed — which is just about all of us — you'll want to pay close attention.

The story starts when it is discovered that some employers are running help wanted ads that specifically state that unemployed persons are NOT welcome to apply for jobs at their company.

In other words these businesses are basically saying, "If you actually need a job, don't even bother applying to our company because we're not interested in you."
