NY program saves 300 LI jobs
The state’s Shared Work program, whose aim is to avert layoffs, saved 300 jobs on Long Island in 2012, nearly one-tenth of the jobs saved statewide, the Labor Department said Tuesday.
That’s down, however, from 350 in 2011. And the numbers also declined in other regions around the state, something the Labor Department attributed to improved economic conditions.
