It is about employers being able attract the employees they need to compete successfully, said Fred DeSanti, vice president of external affairs for PSE&G.
"If workers making good salaries are unable to afford decent housing, they might choose to leave New Jersey and live and work elsewhere," he
said."For companies like PSE&G
that rely on a highly-skilled, well-trained work force, such a scenario is not a welcome one."
said, if companies seeking to move to New Jersey cannot be certain employees can find affordable housing, the companies might look elsewhere for business opportunities.
