The economic woes facing our nation and state have placed tremendous strain and immense challenges on New York small businesses and middle class families. Last year alone, New York State lost 270,000 jobs in the private sector and unemployment in the state and city continues to climb. For all the promise of results, the federal stimulus package has failed to yield any progress towards improving New York’s economic and job climate.
