You wouldn't know it from reading the newspapers, but there was a huge demonstration in New York City on Wednesday June 16, 2010. About 20,000 municipal workers rallied along Broadway by City Hall Park to protest deep proposed budget cuts. Mayor Michael Bloomberg's proposed budget for next year calls for the loss of thousands of city worker jobs,
including those of teachers, firefighters, sanitation workers, social workers, day care workers and others.
