Nearly 800 NYC School Workers Face Layoffs

NEW YORK (AP) – Nearly 800 New York City school workers face layoffs in the fall due to budget cuts.

Education officials said Tuesday that school aides, parent coordinators and other public support staffers will get pink slips in October.

Teachers will be spared from the October layoffs.

Nearly 2,000 teachers are losing their full-time positions but are entitled to stay on as temporary instructors or substitutes. Almost half of those teachers have found new positions or left the school system.

The mayor’s office says the October cuts are the result of the city’s inability to reach an agreement with unions during budget talks.

    Always the ones that make the least money while all these “We have no money” administrators take that money for their raises! Great job NY

    Another fine example of Union’s cutting their own throat. Here is an idea….All the current teachers stil working should give up some pay to help pay for the salaries of those who needed to be cut. LOL, yeah, right, because it is not about the “brotherhood”, it is each for themselves and greed. Let me guess, employees were not willing to pay $100/month towards benefits to save 2000 of their fellow employee’s jobs. Freaking absurd, the greed is astounding!

    TEACHERS, FIREWORKERS, POLICE, SANITATION SHOULD BE LEFT ALONE ! THEY ARE THE “LAST” PEOPLE TO HAVE THEIR JOBS THREATENED. THERE ARE A LOT OF OTHER AREAS IN THE BUDGET THAT CAN GET “SLASHED” WHEN I RIDE THE BUSES & TRAINS & SEE CITY EMPLOYEES MAKING A VERY GOOD SALARY GET ON & SHOW AN ID CARD & RIDE FOR FREE IT SICKENS ME. DO WE REALIZE THE CITY OF NEW IS FEEDING, HOUSING & GIVING FREE MEDICAL TO IMMIGRANTS, TEEN MOTHERS, ETC & I DON’T EVER HEAR ABOUT THOSE PROGRAMS BEING SLASHED BUT WE ALLOW THIS TO TAKE PLACE IN THIS COUNTRY. THIS CAN BE ADJUSTED & SAVE DO0LLARS @ THE SAME TIME. THE CITY IS APPARENTLY GOING @ THE WRONG GROUP OF PEOPLE. I HEARD A GIRL ON THE BUS SAYING HOW SHE WAS 16 YEARS OLD & PREGNANT WNO MEDICAL SO A FAMILY MEMBER IS ALLOWING HER TO USE HER MEDICAID TO PAY FOR HER MISTAKE & THE CITY DON’T KNOW WHATS GOING ON. & THE SAD PART IS SHE WILL GET AWAY WITH IT & THE CITY WON’T KNOW & CARE EITHER WAY. THIS KIND OF NONSENSE HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR DECADES & IT WILL CONTINUE {WITH THE COST BEING PAID FOR WITH HONEST TAX PAYERS DOLLARS} ! ! !
