Will Christie rehire all those unemployed state workers?

State Senator Joe Kyrillos, the senior Republican Member of the Senate Economic Growth Committee issued the following comments regarding reports that New Jersey's unemployment rate rose to 9.3% in July, the highest level in more than a quarter of a century:
Jon Corzine's record on job creation is abysmal. New Jersey's economy was in
decline long before the national recession took hold. Our unemployment rate
remains higher than that of any neighboring state's. More disturbing is the fact
that New Jersey's rate actually rose while the national rate was falling. Sadly,
today's numbers don't tell the whole story.

The whole story is the reason for higher unemployment was that the decline in public sector jobs was greater than the increase in private sector jobs. I guess now when Republicans takeover the state they'll rehire all those laid-off state workers.
