Mayor Bloomberg Predicts Riots If Jobs Aren't Created Soon
King of New York says America can end up like Cairo and Madrid
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was wrong on his predictions of the Jets going to the Super Bowl last season, but he sounds pretty confident in his latest revelation. He says that if America doesn't get more jobs soon, then there will be riots.
NY Daily News reports:
Mayor Bloomberg warned Friday there would be riots in the streets if Washington doesn't get serious about generating jobs.
"We have a lot of kids graduating college, can't find jobs," Bloomberg said on his weekly WOR radio show.
"That's what happened in Cairo. That's what happened in Madrid. You don't want those kinds of riots here."
"The damage to a generation that can't find jobs will go on for many, many years," the normally-measured mayor said.
Bloomberg gave Obama kudos for coming up with a jobs plan.
"At least he's got some ideas on the table, whether you like those or not," he said. "Now everybody's got to sit down and say we're actually gonna do something and you have to do something on both the revenue and the expense side."
And everybody's got to share in the pain.
"When you start picking and choosing which groups do and do not, that's when it becomes unfair in a lot of people's minds," the mayor said. "But we're all in this together."
Just so you don't think Bloomberg his full of hot air, the company that he owns is actually hiring, right now. You can see their job listings here. Hopefully it can keep at least 30 rioters out of the street if ish finally does hit the fan.
