Police and fire fighters, along with other public safety workers, protested layoffs in their towns and what they call an attack on their benefits outside the state house today. Christie has called on public employees to contribute more toward their benefits. Ironically, police and fire fighters are exempt from some of the Governor’s specific proposals such as, raising the retirement age, since emergency workers can retire after a specified number of years of service. They also contribute more toward their benefits.
