MORRIS COUNTY — Democratic Congressional Candidate Tamara Harris today announced her support of Senator Cory Booker, Senator Menendez, and Representative Bill Pascrell for their demand of severance pay for the discharged workers of Toys R Us, which is based in Congressional District 11, where Harris is running for election.

“Since the announcement of the closing of the Wayne-based toy manufacturer in our district I have used my voice to advocate for our elected leaders in New Jersey and in Washington to ensure that the displaced Toys R Us workers receive severance and the assistance they need at this critical time in their lives.

“I commend our state congressmen for putting people before politics by standing with those who lost their jobs and fighting for severance pay and financial regulation.

“It’s time we have members of Congress who will fight to protect workers and families, even if it means standing up to corporate campaign donors.
