TRENTON — The second protest within a week by government employees will take place Thursday outside the State House -- this time with thousands of unionized police, fire and emergency workers expected to show up, digging in against cuts to public safety jobs and changes to benefits
Last week's protest drew more than 3,000 public sector workers.
The upcoming event -- dubbed the "Rally to Take a Stand for Public Safety" -- stands to produce a greater head count, said Dominick Marino, president of the Professional Firefighters Association of New Jersey.
"It's getting bigger every time the phone rings," Marino said. "People from all over the state are coming."
