Nancy Cantor and Vince Marigna, The Star-Ledger
Nancy Cantor, chancellor of Rutgers University–Newark, and Vince Marigna, executive director of Braven Newark, say postings for entry-level jobs are significantly down during the pandemic, just as students are graduating from college.
In this opinion piece, Cantor and Marigna call on state and federal policymakers to support programs that can help first-generation college students, students from low-income backgrounds, and students of color build contacts and skills leading to jobs.
