Sounding alarm bells about the nation's high unemployment rate, Mayor Bloomberg warned this morning that there could be an uprising in the streets if Washington lawmakers don't start creating jobs for millions of Americans.It's not even Obama's fault, he weakly claims.
"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."
Bloomberg also said the damage may be done as the nation's unemployment rate hoovers around 9 percent.
"The damage to a generation that can't find jobs will go on for many, many years," Bloomberg said.
Despite that, the mayor gave Obama praise for coming up with a jobs bill.
Obama didn't create this economic mess, it developed "over long periods of time," Bloomberg said.
