Firefighters, sanitation workers, librarians; who needs them? Apparently, Mayor Bloomberg feels NYC can do without them. In an effort to reduce the city’s $3.3 billion budget deficit, NYC Mayor Micheal Bloomberg announced today that the city’s workforce will be reduced by about 2,000 people by the end of the year. A wide range of city-funded departments will take cuts, including the New York City Police Department, the New York City Fire Department, the Department of Sanitation, youth services, senior services and libraries; you know, only the services/programs that keep the blood pumping through the vessels of this city. To keep the bodily function metaphors going here, I have this to say in conclusion: smooth move, Bloomberg, smooth move.
And now, see Bloomberg’s evil empire exposed and defeated. With cake.
