Cumberland County — Unprecedented Progress In Workforce Education

This personal commentary is the first in a series of those that will continue in The Grapevine to underscore the positive forces of change that continue to make southern New Jersey an even better place to live.

An opinion from SNJ Today President and Founder Ken Pustizzi.

O ur brightest minds become educated and find opportunities in other parts of the country. I heard that 30 years ago

and I still hear it today from some of my busi- ness constituents. Many people, however, are not familiar with the positive movement occur- ring to advance the area so that people will learn here and stay here. There are two major happenings that have the potential to chart a new course for our county. The first begins with the new Cumberland County College president who will be taking office July 1. Dr. Yves Salomon- Fernandez was recruited by a group of commu- nity and business leaders because of her ability to be a very dynamic, inspirational leader not only for the College, but our community as well. She is being charged with advancing the County’s economic development objectives as they relate to workforce training and education. The second is the opening of the new full- time Cumberland County Technical Education Center this September. It is the newest and most advanced high school in the entire state and is opening right here in Cumberland County! Not only will it serve as a high school, its intentional and strategic location on the campus of the County’s College will enable the public facility to function beyond the school day.

War on Wages Heats Up

Many argue that raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour would serve as a death toll for farms in the Garden State. { BY MARGIE BARHAM }

N ew Jersey farmers say they will not be able to compete on the world produce market if the pro- posed legislation to incrementally raise minimum wage to $15 an hour is passed without exemption

for farm workers. According to farmers and business leaders, this legislation would mean a drastic economic impact to the state agriculture industry, as farmers who cannot absorb this cost will not be able to survive. According to New Jersey Farm Bureau Executive Director Pete Furey, farms are “uniquely vulnerable” to the state minimum wage rate. The New Jersey Farm Bureau rep- resents a member of 11,000 farms and agricultural-related businesses in the state. Farms with hired labor compete directly with producers in other states, so increasing the minimum wage rate puts New Jersey growers at a significant competitive disadvantage. As a consequence, increases in the state minimum wage rate also serve as an inducement for producers in other states to target New Jersey’s grocery and other retail channels, further undercutting in-state growers. “Put plainly,” explains Furey, “not only is a New Jersey peach farmer, for example, unable to increase the price of a box of peaches in the wholesale marketplace to account for increased labor costs, but a peach grower in South Carolina, Georgia or elsewhere is all too eager to exploit this vulnerability, capi- talizing on the spoils of New Jersey's vast consumer-base.” Furey further points out that many growers also provide housing and transportation for their employees, out-of-pocket benefits not reflected in the hourly wage rate. “Agriculture is the only industry we are aware of where such non-wage bene- fits are provided,” he says. “These expenses are significant for

WAGES

Continued from cover

many growers, and enable farm employees to avoid paying market-rate for rental or other housing elsewhere.” The risk profile of farming is also rele- vant to this discussion. “Farm businesses, unlike any other industry segment, are acutely susceptible to wholly uncontrollable externalities, ranging from oscillations in the weather and pressure borne from inva- sive insects and diseases, to name a few,” says Furey. “To account for these risks, suc- cessful farm businesses actively manage expenses wherever possible to maintain profitability. A drastic increase in the mini- mum wage rate throws a wrench into their ability to manage such risks.” Indeed it does, echoes John Ploch, presi- dent of Ploch Farms in Vineland. This fami- ly business started in 1915 and has survived the Depression and 101 years of sometimes- extreme weather conditions, and annual economic fluctuations, but such a signifi- cant increase in wages would threaten its existence. “Payroll cost is through the roof now, and labor is our largest expense,” says Ploch, whose 280-acre farm employs 35 people. “Our prices must remain competi- tive, so it comes down to how much we can absorb. If we cannot make a decent living, we have to decide if we can continue to farm. I guess we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.” Bill SCR-1500 would amend the State Constitution and raise New Jersey’s mini- mum wage to $9 per hour on January 1 of the year following the amendment’s approval (expected to be January 1, 2018) followed by increases of a dollar each year until it reaches $15 per hour on January 1, 2024. Starting in 2025, it further calls for the minimum wage rate to keep pace with cost-of-living increases, based on increases in the consumer price index. New Jersey State Assemblyman Bob Andrzejczak (D-District 1) said he is gener- ally opposed to the $15 minimum wage increase and has been advocating for an exemption for agriculture proposal. “This is an industry that cannot set its own prices,

and exists almost entirely on the margins,” he explains. “Bad weather, or too much good weather, can lose a farmer a season, either from losing a crop or prices driven too low from too much supply.” Andrzejczak, who serves as chair of the Assembly’s Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee, further noted that many of our state’s farmers also provide their workers with compensation for transportation, housing, food, and med- ical expenses, which drives pay over and above their hourly wages. If the bill fails to pass or Governor Chris Christie vetoes it, the legislation will go to the hands of the voter as a public referen- dum. Christie has indicated he would veto such legislation. Andrzejczak said that he and his colleagues Assemblyman R. Bruce Land (D-District 1), and State Senator Jeff Van Drew (D-District 1) are pushing for an amendment to the legislation to exempt farmers from this mandatory increase. The three represent Atlantic, Cape May and Cumberland counties. “At this point, I cannot speculate on whether the minimum wage bill will pass, or if it does whether the subsequent ballot measure will be approved by the voters,” Andrzejczak says. “But I do believe that if it did, and agriculture was not exempted, it would devastate one of the most fragile, and absolutely necessary, industries that we have in New Jersey.” Local business leaders agree that the leg- islation will harm businesses and ultimately cost jobs. “The minimum wage legislation is an issue that we are following closely and as the bill is currently written, we oppose it,” says Dawn Hunter, executive director of the Vineland Chamber of Commerce. Like many organizations that represent the business community, they believe that a 79 percent increase, even if phased in, is a cost that businesses cannot absorb and will lead to increases in costs of products and services, reduction in jobs, and ultimately could result in business closures. “We recognize that the agricultural com- munity would be especially hard hit by this increase,” she notes and explains that a variety of businesses that hire hourly workers—sea- sonal employers who hire teenagers as sum- mer help, for example—will have to reduce staffing levels and/or charge higher prices

By the Numbers

On April 14, the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development issued a news release, which announced that New Jersey employers added 17,300 nonfarm jobs in March, according to preliminary data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). It shows private sector employ- ment increased by 78,800 jobs over the past year (March 2015–March 2016). Garden State private sector employers have added 265,000 jobs since February 2010, the recessionary low point for pri- vate sector employment in the state. The release noted that New Jersey residents who have reported to have jobs again reached an all-time high, climbing to a historic 4,378,500 in March 2016, according to the BLS household survey. Among the gains posted were in eight

of nine major private industry sectors. Leisure and hospitality (+3,500) and edu- cation and health services (+3,400) expe- rienced the most growth, followed by con- struction (+3,000), trade, transportation and utilities (+2,900), professional and business services (+1,600), other services (+1,200), financial activities (+1,000) and information (+600). Manufacturing was down 200 jobs, while the public sector recorded a gain of 300 jobs. Farming jobs were not noted in the report. Based on more complete reporting from employers, previously released esti- mates for February were revised up by 3,400 to show an over-the-month total nonfarm employment loss of 5,200 jobs. Preliminary estimates had initially indi- cated an over-the-month loss of 8,600 nonfarm jobs. Preliminary BLS data for April will be released on May 19.

for products and services if they are required to give workers a 79 percent pay hike. “Small businesses would then have to pay $22.50 for time and a half and $30 an hour for overtime,” she said. “There is also the ripple effect where those employees who are now making $15 will also want raises com- mensurate with the 79 percent increase in the minimum wage. Not to mention unem- ployment and workers compensation insur- ances all increase as payrolls are increased.” However, according to the key sponsor of the bill, State Senator Stephen M. Sweeney (D-District 3) who represents Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem counties, this legisla- tion provides a living wage to the nearly one million New Jerseyans living in poverty and will likely help businesses overall. Furthermore, he quoted a New Jersey Policy Perspective study that found that 90 percent of those this increase would help are over age 20; 61 percent work fulltime; 28 percent are parents, and almost half of those attend- ed or graduated college. New Jersey Policy Perspective is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that conducts research on pub- lic policy issues in New Jersey. In a news release issued in February of this year after he introduced the legislation, Sweeney said that the phased-in schedule

will allow businesses to gradually absorb the increases. He noted that a fairer wage will also lower the burden on the state and federal governments to provide assistance for those living at or below the poverty lev- els and that it will spur spending. “The critics who always claim that ‘the sky is falling’ every time we raise the mini- mum wage are just trying to use scare tac- tics that just don’t come true,” said Sweeney in a news release. “They said we would lose jobs when we raised it before but we actual- ly gained jobs. They try to say it’s bad for the economy but every legitimate study shows that just isn’t true.” Sweeney explained that when the mini- mum wage was increased in 2013, the NJBIA predicted it would cause the loss of 31,000 jobs over a decade but instead, he said that New Jersey has actually experi- enced one of the most significant employ- ment increases since then, gaining approxi- mately 29,000 jobs in 2014 and more than 64,000 jobs in 2015. This bill has the support of state senators representing nearly half of New Jersey’s 40 legislative districts, including Senator Jim Whelan (D-District 2) who represents Atlantic County. The plan to phase in the increase mirrors

legislation offered by U.S. Congressman Donald Norcross (D-NJ1) and cosponsored by Congressman Frank Pallone (D-NJ6) and Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ12) that would set the same minimum pay scale nationally. Senator Sweeney’s pro- posal would have the voters approve a con- stitutional amendment, the same process used in 2013 to overcome Governor Christie’s opposition. Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald will sponsor com- panion legislation in the Assembly. Senators Sweeney and Turner said they will also introduce legislation to provide tax credits to small businesses that raise the wages of minimum wage workers faster than the schedule set in the proposed con- stitutional amendment, According to Sweeney’s news release, the amendment would maintain the “indexing” already in the constitution that creates automatic future increases tied to inflation. As an amendment to the state constitution, the proposal would have to be approved by both houses of the Legislature with majori- ty votes in two consecutive years or with three-fifth votes in one year. In order to become law, voters would need to approve the amendment by a simple majority. The likely two-year timetable would have the proposed amendment go to voters in 2017. Last month, on April 3, California Governor Jerry Brown (D) signed a law making his the first state in the nation to enact a $15 statewide minimum wage, while New York Governor Andrew Cuomo approved a $15 minimum wage to New York City and its suburbs, with a $12.50 mini- mum elsewhere in New York State. The “Fight For 15,” a movement that started with unions and community groups backing the efforts of fast food workers to win a living wage, has become a national movement and a critical element of this year’s Democratic presidential campaigns, according to Senator Sweeney. “As more and more states and cities raise their minimum wage—and thereby drive up the wages of all workers—consumer spending will rise, and with it, prosperity for all Americans,” he states in a news release.

Proud to Call You Mom

Happy Mother's Day to our mom, Anna Corrado Magazzu Trapani! You have been a won- derful role model to your two children and your five grandchildren. Your love for your family is expressed in numer- ous ways, and we appre- ciate the sacrifices you have made through the years. So many Italian fami- ly dinners you have cooked for us for decades, encouraging togetherness and family values which you hope to pass on. Although you still wish to do every- thing exactly as you did when you were a young wife, we are also happy that you now give in to our wishes to cele- brate some family holidays on us. Your grandchildren express amaze- ment at your continued high energy level and zest for life. Of course, they were not here 40 years ago when you faced deadly illness in the face, and triumphed in the end.

You then spent decades vol- unteering your time and energy organizing large fundraising events for the local chapter of the American Cancer Society, in addition to also visiting many cancer-stricken patients in your "Reach to Recovery" program, which you helped create, to offer them encouragement against tough odds, and sadly only some of them survived. A highlight of my life was accompa- nying you and Dad on several trips to see our cousins in Italy, on both sides of the family, and watch you enjoy their kind hospitality, watching you pitch in even while a guest, and witnessing your enjoyment of hearing the Italian conver- sation and merriment which prompted many invitations for return visits. Outside of your family, you also have an extended family of friends. Some of them who are younger con- sider themselves to be like an hon- orary daughter or son. We are all proud to call you "Mom." Love, your son, Michael

I Jersey Reflections { BY VINCE FARINACCIO }

Tea Burners Win

The sheriff “selected a jury from relatives of the tea burners or known sympathizers.”

G reenwich-area youth broke into Daniel Bowen’s cellar on December 22, 1774, and removed and burned a supply of

East India tea deposited there by Captain J. Allen of the brig Greyhound for safekeep- ing. It was a decisive statement by Cumberland County residents concerning British taxes. But the aftermath of the Greenwich Tea Burning seemed to serve as a similar commentary as well. Michael J. Chiarappa, in his essay “Colonial Greenwich: The Emergence of a Delaware Bay Port Community,” contained in the Vineland Historical and Antiquarian Society’s collection, believes that the inci- dent carried with it more than just political fervor. “Much of this event,” he writes, “suggests more than straightforward dis- content with British tax policy, but was also, given that many of the tea burners were Presbyterian, a challenge to long- standing Quaker hegemony in the area. Indeed, some of the tea burners were edu- cated at Rev. Enoch Green’s Presbyterian- affiliated classical school at Deerfield, New Jersey and some at the Presbyterian-affili- ated College of New Jersey (today Princeton University).” Notwithstanding the religious and polit- ical agendas the tea burning exhibited, it was the legal ramification that immediately took precedence in an attempt to bring to justice the perpetrators of what, in the eyes of the British authorities, was a heinous crime. The task proved to be much easier than might be suspected. Despite the Indian disguises used by the participants, everyone was aware of who comprised the raiding party. John Warner Barber in his text Historical Collections of the State of New Jersey, identifies the group as consisting of Dr. Ebenezer Elmer, Richard Howell, David Pierson, Stephen Pierson, Silas Whitecar, Timothy Elmer, Rev. Andrew Hunter, Rev. Philip Tithian, Alexander Moore, Jr., Clarence Parvin, John Hunt, James Hunt, Lewis Howell, Henry Stacks, James Ewing, Dr. Thomas Ewing, Josiah Seeley, and Joel Fithian. The British authorities and sympathiz- ers were irate over the tea burning and called for severe measures in dealing with the matter. Barber’s book offers a look at the legal action taken: “The owners of the tea, finding that some commiseration for their loss had been excited among the peo-

ple in the neighborhood, thought proper to try whether they could not obtain remu- neration by having recourse to suits at law. Therefore…Capt. Allen, John Duffield, Stacy Hepburn, and others, brought as many as half a dozen suits for damages against some of the Whigs.” In the meantime, Cumberland County residents managed to raise enough money to provide attorneys for those involved in the lawsuit. Advocates for the plaintiffs included General Joseph Reed of Philadelphia, and the proceedings did not result in the repayment Captain Allen and the others had hoped for. William McMahon’s South Jersey Towns reports that Sheriff Jonathan Elmer was assigned to arrest the perpetrators and gather together a grand jury. What seems to have been overlooked was the fact that Elmer’s two brothers, Ebenezer and Timothy, had participated in the incident. So the sheriff “selected a jury from relatives of the tea burners or known sympathizers. After the presentation of enough evidence to convict anyone, the grand jury voted ‘no cause for action.’ ” The ruling resulted in the removal of Elmer as sheriff by New Jersey Governor William Franklin, whose Tory or pro- British stance was well known. Elmer was replaced by none other than Daniel Bowen, who was charged with putting together a new grand jury for a second trial. McMahon writes, “This Bowen did; but again the patriots were in the majority, and the remaining Tories were timid. This jury also brought in ‘no cause for action.’ ” Barber’s book reports that “as the American contest soon became serious, and hostilities were carried on in different parts of the states, the suits were dropped, and never after renewed.” It seems, however, that the British never forgot their humilia- tion at the hands of Cumberland County residents, as Barber’s book explains: “In the revolutionary contest, the inhabitants of the county upon the shore of Delaware Bay were frequently alarmed and sometimes plundered by the refugees. When the British fleet ascended the Delaware to attack Philadelphia, a party of armed men landed and destroyed some cattle upon the salt marsh between the Cohansey and Stow creeks.” I

COMMENTARY

(Continued from cover)

In collaboration with the College, there Cumberland County residents will be able to access late afternoon and evening adult train- ing in a flexible manner like never before. The new programs to be offered by CCTEC and the College will offer flexibil- ity so that someone who is working a full- time job can simultaneously learn a new skill or trade to advance in the workforce. During SNJ Today’s most recently tele- vised Board of Chosen Freeholders Meeting, CCTEC Superintendent Dr. Dina Elliot addressed the Freeholders with

information about the many programs being offered by the new school. She also fielded a multitude of questions. The fol- lowing is what has specifically caught my attention. The decision-making process for evalu- ating programs has historically been based on the amount of interest and number of participants in each program as well as existing career opportunities. This, I understand to be the planning process used by most secondary and post-sec- ondary learning institutions. If there are too few enrolled participants, the pro- grams are dropped. Dr. Elliott, in particular, was ques- tioned on the plumbing program. It is my

understanding that currently, at the shared-time CCTEC, there are 15 students enrolled in that program. What’s eye opening is that in those classes there are only three shared-time high school stu- dents training alongside of 12 adults. That’s right — only three high school stu- dents are currently enrolled in CCTEC’s plumbing program.

dents are currently enrolled in CCTEC’s plumbing program. Ken Pustizzi, President & Founder, SNJ Today I

Ken Pustizzi, President & Founder, SNJ Today

I see this as a serious community awareness issue. I do not see this as only a technical training school issue. It is not the sole responsibility of CCTEC to promote a singular skill and trade like plumbing. Businesses, work- force development agencies and county leadership in general need to understand future career and employment needs and

clearly communicate those opportunities to the general public. You see, if more of our youth decide to apply for that trade or any other, the school then has the ability to reinstitute closed programs at our state-of-the-art facility. Developing partnership agreements with Cumberland County College, the County’s Center for Workforce Development and other local and state agencies to ensure the new facility pro- vides programs to serve both high school and adult students is where the CCTEC administration needs to stay focused. They are also simultaneously preparing the school for its Fall opening as they transition to a full-time high school. These are monumental tasks that will result in county education advancements. These activities, these significant edu- cation changes happening right now have the opportunity to be real game changers for our area. I believe they are only the beginning stages of positive change. I encourage community residents to be patient and well informed as important constructive changes continue. Loud neg- ative attitudes will silence the good ideas, ensure broken spirits and result in more of the status quo. As long as I am investing in this com- munity, I’ll do my best to encourage its progress. It is only with this progress that we will improve the quality of life in our entire region. I

ers, and others. The speaker, Roger Brooks, is a world-renowned expert on destination creation and his presentation was phenom- enal. We left with our heads full of ideas to take back and adapt to our communities. Some of these ideas are initiatives that we’ve been working on, while others will be discussed in our teams—as they were in our Economic Restructuring Team meeting the next day. No doubt, you’ll be as excited as we’ll be, as you see progress on these plans. Despite cloudy, damp weather, it was a great day for our downtown.

A s I write this, we just finished a week that was a real whirlwind of activity, but it really felt good! We began on Monday, April 25,

with a pizza party for the Police Athletic League’s Girls In Action to show apprecia- tion for all they do to help during Clean-Up and Planting Days. They’ve been truly ded- icated volunteers and we wanted to give them a relaxed evening of fun and cama- raderie. It took place at the PAL building and Mayor Bermudez was on hand to give each in the group a certificate. Meanwhile, we were putting the finish- ing touches on preparations to host Main Street representatives and community leaders from throughout the state for Main Street New Jersey’s Design Institute. It was an opportunity for us to roll out the wel- come mat and show what we’ve been doing. Grant Plaza was filled that day with over 150 people—representatives from Main Streets, Economic Development lead-

I News in Brief

Kil-Tone Residential Property Walk-Through Set for Thursday

City of Vineland officials will conduct a walk-through of the residential properties located within the Kil-Tone Superfund site on Thursday, May 5, to review progress the EPA is making on the remedial phase of the project. It will also give city officials the opportunity to meet with residents and to answer any questions they may have regarding the project. City officials will meet at the corner of 6th and Cherry Street at approximately 2:45 p.m. The EPA is currently conducting an interim removal action on 19 residential properties located closest to the former Kil- Tone Company Site to address the high lev- els of arsenic and lead present in the sur- face soil. The interim action consists of using landscaping to greatly reduce the potential for exposure to bare soil areas on the property. A final cleanup will be deter- mined and carried out in the future.

Venice, Italy visited Compass Academy, a Let Me Learn (LML) public charter school, on April 27 to observe how students and teachers incorporate Let Me Learn into the curriculum and daily life at the Academy.

As a Let Me Learn Lab School, Compass’ mission is solely focused on developing the learning potential of each child and in equipping the child to learn at home, at school, in the workplace and the greater community. As a public school, Compass is currently accepting applications for all grades during its open enrollment period for next September.

Society. The Character Education Committee and the School Garden Committee wanted to develop a school garden to offer stu- dents, faculty, par- ents, and community members an oppor- tunity to use the garden as a way to build a bond between the Bridgeton community, home, and school. This is an opportunity for all the stake- holders to learn about nutrition, leader- ship, teamwork, pride, and collaboration by participating in this farm-to-table learning activity in school. The garden will give students the opportunity to learn where their food comes from, how it grows, and that a healthy diet starts with fresh fruits and vegetables. Teachers can use the garden and create integrated les- sons with the core curriculum, including math, social studies, language arts, sci- ence, health, and art.

Cap 'n' Dagger Club Wins Two Awards at Annual Theater Fest

The Vineland High School Cap ‘n’ Dagger Club production of Mary Poppins captured two top awards at the 2016 Student Theater Festival at the Bucks County Playhouse recently. The group was honored for Best Choreography and received the coveted Best Ensemble award. In addition to the two awards, the cast has been asked back to be featured in the “Best of Show” per- formance on May 15 to compete against five to seven of the region’s top schools. They will compete before four Broadway veterans, including Bucks County Playhouse Producing Director and Tony Award-winning producer Alexander Fraser, Will Hammerstein (grandson of Oscar Hammerstein II), Tony Award-win- ning playwright Christopher Durang, and Broadway actress Jennifer Van Dyck. The winner of this performance will receive a cash prize to support the performing arts department of their school. The dance scenes in Mary Poppins were arranged by Natalie Quackenbush. Best ensemble is considered the most difficult award to win because it involves the entire cast. Melanie Anderson was director and co-producer of the show. Hank Ehrlich was stage manager and co-producer for the production. Eileen Bosco was musical director. The show was originally per- formed on four dates in March in the audi- torium of VHS South.

Credit Union Donates to Ovarian Cancer Care

for details. Credit Union Donates to Ovarian Cancer Care South Jersey Federal Credit Union employees presented

South Jersey Federal Credit Union employees presented a check in the amount of $2,200 to representatives from the Cooper Foundation on behalf of the SJFCU employees’ “Charitable Journey” program. Employees raised $1,100, which was gener- ously matched by the Credit Union, bringing the total donation to $2,200. The monies donated will assist the MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper in pro- viding care to patients undergoing treatment for ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer accounts for about 3 percent of cancers among women, but it causes more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system, according to the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society estimates that 22,280 women will receive a new diagnosis of ovarian cancer and about 14,240 women will die from the disease this year. “We are incredibly thankful to the employees of South Jersey Federal Credit Union for selecting MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper as the beneficiary of their Charitable Journey employee giving program,” said Susan Bass Levin, President and CEO of the Cooper Foundation and an ovarian cancer survivor. “By joining together in the fight against ovarian cancer, we can help save lives.” “Charitable Journey” is an employee sponsored charity program in which any South Jersey Federal Credit Union employee can nominate a worthy organization for which to donate money. A different charity is randomly selected each Quarter and funds are then raised by employees. As an incentive to donate, SJFCU employees who contribute are permitted to dress down for charity on Fridays.

Cyber Security for Businesses

Presentation by NJ Office of Homeland Security at April Luncheon.

BY JEFFREY SCHWACHTER

On Thursday, April 21, the Vineland Ramada hosted the Greater Vineland Chamber of Commerce’s April General Membership Luncheon. Along with brief remarks by event sponsor Griswold Home Care and also from Cumberland County College and Steamworks, the slate included a presentation by the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security & Preparedness on “Cyber Security for your Business.” Director of Cybersecurity and Chief Information Security Officer for the State of New Jersey, David Weinstein, led a half- hour presentation and took questions from the audience members, following lunch. Along with discussing issues relat- ed to national cyber security—including current trends, the inefficiency of the “password” as we know it, new technolo- gies regarding authentication, making computer systems and software better protected from hackers, and other progressive steps the government is taking to implement new technology

in the future—Weinstein directed much of his presentation to the business community. He advised all small-business owners to take cyber security seriously and to visit the State’s free Web site—cyber.nj.gov—a public service that provides tools and resources for business owners to learn more about current cyber threats, activity and alert levels. Weinstein also explained how local business owners can join the NJ Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Cell (NJCCIC), the “State’s one-stop shop for cybersecurity information sharing, threat analysis, and incident reporting.” The mission of the State organization, its many functions and publications are available to peruse on the aforemen- tioned government Web site. (Look for video of this presenta- tion on Cumberland County’s Channel, Comcast 22 and on SNJToday.com in the near future. Follow The Grapevine on Facebook to find out when.)

LEGISLATIVE CORNER

The GVCC has joined a coalition of the NJBIA to reform Estate and Retirement Income Taxes. There are two bills associated with this effort, S-1728 and S-998. We believe that this reform is crucial and these two major tax issues need to be addressed to stop the exodus of people moving out of state. We are taking action because we understand how out-migration impacts your business.

The GVCC is also very concerned and is actively opposing these three proposed bills that could adversely affect busi- nesses. Make your voice be heard by contacting our legisla- tors at: njleg.state.nj.us/districts. We are in District 1. You can also read the bills in their entirety on that website.

S799 – MANDATED PAID SICK LEAVE Recently amended by the NJ Senate, it would require busi- nesses to offer employees a pool of paid time off (vacation, personal, sick, etc.). For every 30 hours worked, an hour of paid time off would accrue. Businesses with fewer than 10 employees would be required to allow employees to accrue up to 40 hours and businesses with 10 or more employees would be required to allow employees to accrue up to 72 hours. All employees would be allowed to carry over those hours year to year. This legislation applies to full-time, part- time and seasonal employees.

A15 – RAISES MINIMUM WAGE TO $15 / HOUR This bill proposes to raise the NJ State minimum wage to $15 per hour for 40 hours of working time in any week and

1 ½ times the employee’s regularly hourly wage for each hour of working time in excess of 40 hours in any week, with a few exceptions. It also provides that the minimum wage rate will be increased by any increase in the consumer price index. GVCC Comments: A new minimum wage legislation was enact- ed less than three years ago and is also tied to the consumer price index. We need to allow some time for that to develop before enacting new legislation. That previous bill also became part of our constitution, which we are strongly opposed to. See this week’s issue (May 4) of The Grapevine for an in-depth story about how raising the minimum wage will affect Cumberland County businesses, particularly farmers and others who employ seasonal workers.

A1117 – NJ SCHEDULES THAT WORK ACT This bill provides that employees may request a change to their work schedules without fear of retaliation, and requires that employers consider these requests. This applies to any employer with more than 15 employees. Employees may request a change in terms and condition of employment relating to number of hours required to work or be on call for work; times when the employee is required to work or be on call for work; and the location. The bill also details other specific requirements for retail, food service or cleaning service employers. Among other items, the legislation involves advance notice of shift changes and paying employ- ees if actual hours of work are less than what was scheduled.

“While I could sing the praises of the Vineland Chamber and how it harmonizes the voices of local small businesses to our State legislature with deli- cate precision, that would only be scratching the surface. Being a part of an organization whose desire is the welfare and success of local business- es daily reinforces to me that the American Dream is alive and well and helps me to recognize those that are working behind the scenes to make our town as strong as it can be. As a member of the Chamber, our company aligns with our community in helping those businesses and individuals whose life is committed to helping others. Chamber of Commerce member- ship represents our pledge to the betterment of the communities in which we live and work and are honored to be a part of.

Charter School Receives Approvals of Site Plan and Preschool Expansion

Officials at the Vineland Public Charter School (VPCS) received approval from the New Jersey Division

of Childhood Education to add pre- school classes to its enrollment for the 2016-2017 School year. In addition, during a special meeting of the Vineland Planning Board on April 21, the site plan for construction of the VPCS’s new home on Pennsylvania Avenue was also approved. The site plan was presented by Highmark School Development, LLC professionals and was unanimously approved. The school, to house a pro- jected enrollment of 452 students in PK-Grade 9, will open for the 2016- 2017 School Year. A groundbreaking ceremony is planned for early May. This announcement follows approval granted in February of this

year to include a 9th grade for the

2016-2017 School Year. “Once again, we are pleased to receive the approvals needed to expand the availability of Charter School education for the children of Vineland,” said Ann F. Garcia, Ed. D,

Executive Director, VPCS. “In addition to providing the city’s first-ever Charter High School Program, we will also be welcoming preschoolers to the VPCS family. We couldn’t be more excited.” The Vineland Public Charter School

was recently rated as the number one

public school in Cumberland County. Its mission is to provide a nurturing, supportive, creative, and actively engaging environment for students

and families that facilitates the devel-

opment of well-educated and respon- sible young adults with a life-long love of learning. For more information, visit vinelandpubliccharterschool.org.
