There was a time when the common path to success in New Jersey often went like this - You get a job with Western Electric or Budweiser or Campbell's Soup or some other big company, stay there for 30 or 40 years and then your kids come on board to repeat the whole process over again.
But this is typically not the case anymore.
With the typical American worker changing jobs more than a dozen times in their career, that two-way track of loyalty between company and employee seems a quaint nostalgic notion now.
As PSEG celebrates its 120th anniversary, the company is highlighting stories they say make them a modern-day anomaly - with families who have had four or five generations working there. Families like that of Lori Spagnuolo McElroy, whose great-grandfather laid trolley tracks for the company and who is now the fifth generation in her family to be working there.
