Bloomberg is Out of Touch with Unemployed New Yorkers

A November 21 story in the New York Times, which highlights the impact of unemployment on New York City, noted jobs have been diminishing since the terrorist attacks of September 11.

According to the article:

  • As recently as two years ago, the city’s jobless rate was 5.8 percent; it is now 9.3 percent, down from 10.6 percent in January;
  • On Dec. 31, 95,000 New York City residents will exhaust their unemployment benefits;
  • On May 1, 2011, that number will double, with 190,000 additional people losing their benefits.

Meanwhile, New York City ‘Nanny State’ Mayor Michael Bloomberg recently teamed up with comic book character Spider-Man to publicize “the creation of ‘Spider-Man, You’re Hired,’ an all-new comic book highlighting City resources available to New Yorkers who are navigating the job market.”

What’s truly comical is Bloomberg’s progressive agenda to control lifestyle choices with his crusade against salt, sugar and trans fats instead of focusing on the City’s unemployment predicament.

During these trying times, unemployed New Yorkers could certainly do without fictional characters, comic books and a mayor who thinks he knows what’s best.
