What happened to hiring police and fire that r harrison residents.  Shouldn't  be that if you livehere you should bee considerede first for a job.

Dat "BEE" right. But the rite people don't "BEE" hoo dey want to hire. So the ones hoo "BEE" hired are the ones dey want to "BEE" the cops and firemans. Now you no how it "BEE?" And don't let dat other "BE" bite you on your sorry ass.

As the result of an NAACP lawsuit, a liberal judge ruled, since Harrison and several other towns do not have large black populations, resident hirings are discriminatory. Harrison must open their lists to all residents of Hudson and Essex County. Veterans are given preference. Only one or two Harrison residents scored high enough to be selected.

Since the 'liberal' Judge (was it DuBois?) made that ruling in the early 90's, was there a 'time' stipulation how how 'long' it had to be in effect or has its 'goal' been achieved and can it be overturned now or soon, since Harrison has its own 'diverisity' of races that are being held back on town jobs since so many cops and firemen are from out of town?

Newark and Jersey City require residence to be hired..the "Suburban" towns, that are civil Service are required to have "Open" hiring unless they meet a standard set by the courts (re: NAACP) for minority population, and employment. Apparently the "Great Hardship" of moving into a town and getting an apartment was too much for some people..especially since you only had to remain for a year, then you could move wherever you wanted.

Why should you have to move to a city just to get hired? when the people in those cities can get hired here and never step foot in the town.

Because the cities already have built in "Diversity", whereas at the time of the NAACP lawsuits, there were very few African-americans living in Harrison or Kearny, and those who DID live here showed little to no interest in becoming PO's or Firefighters. Same with Females..there were just not that many who were taking the test, and out of those who did, most simply were unable to pass the background check or the physical.In fact Kearny didnt have any females until the County PD disbabded, whereupon they hired 2.
