Atlantic City has made a modify to how it pays its workers in an attempt to stave off a financial collapse.

The financially crumbling seaside resort'south City Council Wednesday night passed the measure that means workers will obtain paid every twenty-eight days. They obtain paid every fourteen days now.

Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian had warned that city corridor would near and non-essential city services would be eliminated on Friday.

The modify was needed because state aid for the city has been delayed by a stalled takeover bill in the Legislature.

Republican Gov. Chris Christie and Democratic Gathering Speaker Vincent Prieto, along with Guardian are wrangling about giving the state authority over the city's finances.

Prieto objects to legislation approved by the state Senate and backed by Christie, saying it jeopardizes unions' bargaining rights.

Gov. Chris Christie came to Atlantic City, not to meet with its embattled mayor, but to condemn the fellow Republican him as "a liar" who can't do math or realize simple concepts.

The Gov on Wednesday used his harshest speech yet to criticize Mayor Don Guardian as the seaside gambling resort draws closer to going broke.

Democratic Gathering Speaker Vincent Prieto continues to refuse to post an Atlantic City takeover bill for a vote unless provisions are added protecting public employee contracts — something Guardian supports.

The Gov called Guardian a liar for agreeing to, then opposing, a state takeover.

Guardian says he'south disappointed Christie has resorted to name-calling instead of helping the city. Guardian says lawmakers promised changes to defend Atlantic City but never delivered them.
