Numbers for Unemployment rates for New York State and North Country

The statewide unemployment rate in New York declined from 6.0% to 5.9% in last month, reaching its lowest level since September 2008, according to preliminary figures released yesterday by the New York State Department of Labor. New York State’s private sector job count remained near its record-high level, falling by only 100 jobs out of more than 7.6 million, or less than 0.1 percent, in November 2014. Since the beginning of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s administration, the state’s economy has added Five Hundred and Six Thousand and One Hundred private sector jobs as well as experienced employment growth in 40 of the past 47 months. This period included 22 consecutive months of private sector job growth, the state’s longest streak on record. This area’s employment statistics are not quite as rosy as the rest of the state’s….In fact, Lewis County lost 200 non-farm jobs between November 2013 and 2014, The Utica-Rome area lost 500 jobs during that same period. The Jefferson County- Watertown area’s employment figures remained flat over the past year.

Assembly Members split on proposed Healthcare Bill

A Downstate assemblyman would like to see New York State provide universal healthcare to all residents. Assemblyman Richard Gottfried of Manhattan plan is to have a publicly-funded healthcare system with no out-of-pocket costs, premiums, or co-payments. In this system, the resources to fund the Medicaid program would shift from counties and property taxes to the state level and funding for the public healthcare system would come from a payroll tax. Tune in to YOUR North Country News on Monday to hear my interview with Assemblyman Kenneth Blankenbush where we discuss this proposed plan.
