New Jersey firefighters are biting their nails as the City of Trenton announces they will start laying off firefighters.
The announcement came on Monday and proclaims that 64 layoffs will begin come November 1, an effort to free up $5.3 million dollars for the city.
Meanwhile, city firefighter’s unions are bracing for impact.
“We’re in active discussions,” said Wayne Wolk, president of the city’s firefighters’ union.
According to NJ, the layoffs come as reports surface that economic conditions have not improved.
