Mayor de Blasio announces new job plan

Posted: Updated:

Mayor Bill de Blasio Thursday announced a plan to bring 100,000 new jobs to New York City over the next 10 years.

The New York Works plan aims to prepare workers for jobs in a variety of industries.

The mayor says training will be available for 30,000 cybersecurity jobs, 20,000 manufacturing jobs, 15,000 health care jobs, 10,000 cultural positions and 25,000 jobs for creating new commercial office spaces for the city.

The program will be open to every applicant, the mayor says, regardless of whether they went to college.

De Blasio says the goal is to give struggling residents the opportunity to live a middle-class lifestyle.

Additionally, the mayor says 281,000 New Yorkers are expected to be lifted out of poverty by the end of 2017.
