New Jersey announced on Nov. 2 that as many as 1,000 unemployed state residents will soon be hired by the state to help with the recovery from Hurricane Sandy. The federal government approved a $15.6 million National Emergency Grant on Friday that will pay for the temporary workers. Each worker can be paid a maximum of $12,000 and kept at work for up to six months. Local governments will hire the workers to help with cleanup and reconstruction of public property, according to the governor’s office.
