BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — As part of his push to decrease unemployment across the state, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a new initiative to connect job seekers with employment opportunities in western New York.
The program, which Cuomo calls his ‘unemployment strikeforce,’ will be spread throughout offices in Buffalo, Lackawanna and Niagara Falls, focusing on removing barriers to employment for those who live in areas with high unemployment rates.
Cuomo said he launched a similar program in the Bronx, which arranged more than 17,000 job placements since 2014.
Currently, a newly launched part of New York State’s website lists thousands of available jobs across the region.
