GALLERY: Unions March to Protest Benefits Reform
Members walked to show their displeasure with Gov. Chris Christie's proposed changes to public workers' benefits.
Members of several large unions marched along Lacey Road earlier today, protesting Gov. Chris Christie's pension plan and benefits proposal, which, among other changes, would require public workers to contribute more money toward their benefits.
Communication Workers of America, AFL-CIO, Retired Teachers and the New Jersey Education Association participated in the action. Carrying placards that proclaimed, "We are the middle class," the marchers said they understand that times are hard, but they resent being made into scapegoats for the troubled economy.
