672 School Lay Offs

Bloomberg Lays Off 672 School Employees in Largest Firing in Three Terms

The school employees, who were laid off today by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, had worked as school aides, parent coordinators, family workers, and other support positions at roughly 350 schools, The New York Times reported.

The union representing the workers, District Council 37, had ''made three proposals to the city that included giving up paid holidays and reducing the maximum number of hours school aides were allowed to work as ways to save money,'' The NYTimes reported. Mayor Bloomberg rejected each of the union's proposals.

Mayor Bloomberg is on a rampage to bust all of the municipal workers' unions before his third term is up.
