TRENTON - As New Jersey struggles to balance its budget, a new Quinnipiac University poll shows many voters favor state labor cuts to ease fiscal woes.
More than half of those polled support layoffs for state workers. About 65 percent said they support imposing furloughs and reducing pensions, and 77 percent said they support wage freezes.
Nearly three-quarters said they oppose cutting aid to public schools, and more than half also support the so-called ?Millionaires Tax,? aimed at the state?s wealthiest earners.
The telephone poll was taken Feb. 3-7 and it surveyed 1,347 registered voters.
