About the Coalition

The Keep NJ Competitive Coalition was formed in 2013 by the New Jersey Business and Industry Association (NJBIA) to educate the public and policymakers about the unintended consequences of mandates like those that impose paid, protected sick leave requirements on private employers.

No business wants to lose a good worker. So, when companies can afford to provide paid sick leave, they typically will.  For those who cannot afford to do so, a paid sick leave mandate will have a financially chilling effect on their business and their employees.

It is for that reason that so many state and local advocates, community organizations, individual businesses and policy experts have all come together to defend our economy in the wake of minimum wage increases, federal healthcare reform and higher payroll taxes.

The coalition continues to grow every day and includes:
