Major Job Initiative Will Get New Yorkers Working Again

February 2, 2010

Job Creation Is Job One

Statewide unemployment in New York recently reached nine percent.  Last year, the state lost 269,000 jobs and the governor is already projecting that another 40,000 will be lost in 2010.  It is clear that we need to reverse this trend.  That’s why I am proposing a major new jobs initiative designed to jump start our economy and get people working.

The 2010 Job Creation & Retention Plan is a comprehensive recovery blueprint which would add no spending to the state budget and would pay for itself through increased jobs and revenue from economic growth.
