From Mike Bloomberg's 5-Borough Economic Opportunity Plan:
Mike has a plan to get New Yorkers through this recession. His Five Borough Economic Opportunity Plan is designed to maximize every resource the City has to help limit the effects of the recession and create or retain 400,000 jobs for hard working New Yorkers.
From the Daily News:
Three hundred city employees are getting the ax today with more to follow in the coming weeks, as Mayor Bloomberg's budget cuts take a chunk out of the city workforce.
"It says something about who he's running the city for," said Faye Moore, president of Social Service Employees Union Local 371. "We have people with 15 years' [experience] hitting the street."
She said 289 child welfare workers are being laid off from the Administration for Children's Services, even while other city departments are hiring new employees.
