New Jersey is so hard up for hard cold cash it has taken to chasing down controversial unemployment debt from the 1970’s.
“The State of New Jersey claims they overpaid some unemployment debt from the 1970’s.
In the case of former Municipal Councilor Alice Mainville, it’s enough to make most people shake their heads.
Mainville got a letter from her home state recently telling her she owes New Jersey’s Department of Labor a whopping $73 because they gave her too much money in an unemployment check 35 years ago.
That’s right, $73 … 35 years ago.”
Yeah…New Jersey’s so hard up for cash it’s collecting phantom debts from an era long gone by.
