The Arc New Jersey Continues Robust Advocacy for DSP Wage Increase

The Arc New Jersey has been vigorously advocating for a DSP wage increase. Executive Director Tom Baffuto testified before the Senate Budget Committee on the issue.  He explained that low wages create a barrier to recruitment and retention and that “Although the proposed budget recognizes the need for increased service dollars, those dollars do not help the system if we don’t have the necessary staff to deliver the services.” Additionally, advocates from The Arc New Jersey have been meeting with members of the Assembly Budget Committee.
