On Friday, Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino seized the opportunity to blast Gov. Andrew Cuomo for this week’s Department of Labor jobs report that showed a 0.1 percent increase in the State’s unemployment rate.
“You don’t need yesterday’s jobs numbers to understand the answer. You just have to ask your neighbors wherever you live in New York. They know and so do you probably,” Astorino said in an online video. “New Yorkers continue to get hammered by government policies poisonous to economic growth.”
