New Jersey plans to hire the unemployed to help repair damage to state parks caused by Superstorm Sandy.

Labor Commissioner Hal Wirths will announce details of the program during a news conference at Liberty State Park in Jersey City Monday.

Officials plan to use a federal grant to hire those out of work. They'll be assigned to clean up and restore Liberty State Park and other parks throughout the state.
