59 Health and Hospitals Corporation workers slated to be laid off
Finding a job that provides health benefits in this struggling economy is a daunting task.
Losing one is devastating.
But that's the fate of 59 laborers who work for the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation who are slated to be laid off on Friday.
One targeted worker is Hasan Can, a 44-year-old laborer whose wife is a breast cancer survivor and requires regular treatments.
Nicholas Bensberg, another laborer, is married with an 18-month-old son.
"I might be able to get some work, but I won't get anything with benefits," said the 32-year-old.
Laborers mow lawns, shovel snow, move desks, patch up potholes and take care of other tasks at city hospitals.
