LoHud reports today New York has lost 160,000 manufacturing jobs since 2001.
But wait! Another Democratic US Senator to the rescue.
More than 160,000 New Yorkers have lost manufacturing jobs since 2001.Here is a newsflash for Gillibrand - government does not create jobs, unless they are taxpayer funded jobs. This is precisely the problem with politicians like Gillibrand, pandering to people to make them think they create jobs. Maybe in their own mind they think government creates jobs, while in fact government needs to learn what it has to do to create an environment for private sector to create the jobs.
Tomorrow U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY, will release a report detailing those job losses by region and explaining how she plans to create new well paid jobs.
Stay tuned …
Until politicians like Gillibrand understand that very basic concept New York will continue to be buried under a heavy tax burden, heavy energy cost, heavy regulatory environment and non-business friendly government policies that is not conducive to creating jobs and another 160,000 or more jobs will continue to move out of New York to other more business friendly states.
