Cost of Layoffs Message

CSEA will shortly be on the air with a statewide ad campaign debunking the myth that layoffs are a quick-fix in a fiscal crisis. The ads make that point that politicians can’t talk about creating jobs while laying people off. The message will work for both state and local government circumstances in the near term.

The message is particularly timely considering a new Siena College poll (attached) finds 71 percent of New Yorkers believe job creation must be among the top priorities of the incoming Cuomo Administration. (Note that 64 percent also believe balancing the state budget must be a top priority too however).

The radio ad is attached…it will begin airing statewide next Monday (11/22); a TV ad is expected to be on the air by the following Monday (11/29). Some targeted print ads will also run selectively. We will be working to fine-tune the ad placement to help in local government flights over the next few weeks as well.
