REPORT: Chuck Schumer Begged Airline CEO Not To Move New York Jobs To Florida

Joe Biden and the Democrats have only been in office for barely three months and they are already having a terrible effect on American jobs.

First Biden intentionally killed thousands of pipeline jobs. Then we learned Ford is moving jobs from Ohio to Mexico.

Now we learn that Chuck Schumer recently begged an airline CEO not to move jobs out of New York.

The New York Post reports:

Chuck Schumer urges JetBlue CEO not to ship NYC jobs to Florida

Sen. Chuck Schumer personally pleaded with JetBlue’s boss not to shrink the budget airline’s Big Apple workforce as it weighs shipping jobs to Florida, The Post has learned.

The senior New York senator said he made his case on a phone call with JetBlue Chief Executive Robin Hayes Wednesday evening — a day after The Post exclusively reported that the carrier was considering whether to move some jobs from its Long Island City headquarters to existing offices in the Sunshine State.

On Thursday, Schumer told The Post he wanted to remind Hayes that “JetBlue’s roots and its future are here in New York.” He also pointed out the billions of dollars in federal aid that airlines like it have received during the coronavirus crisis.

“With the critical pandemic relief dollars we just delivered on to help save airlines like JetBlue, and the thousands and thousands of New Yorkers they already employ, the airline should actually clear the runway to grow here, not recede,” the Democratic Senate majority leader told The Post in a Thursday statement.

You know what this proves? That Democrats know how bad this looks.

New York’s loss will be Florida’s gain.
