the temporary workers’ Bill of Rights was pulled at the last
minute in Trenton this week. There are an estimated 130,000 temporary workers
in New Jersey, including short-term employees of warehouses like Amazon hired
through staffing firms.
The bill’s sponsor state Sen. Joe Cryan (D-Union
County) discusses it with Alex Zdan.
Also, five people
were killed last weekend by a gunman who entered a Colorado Springs club that
has long been a safe haven for the LGBTQ community. Dr. Perry Halkitis, dean of
the Rutgers School of Public Health, wrote that “hate is the most
significant driver that diminishes public health.” He joins this week’s Power & Politics.
