Cuomo loses More Jobs

Sbarro LLC, the struggling Melville-based pizza chain that's long been a staple of mall food courts and roadside rest areas, emerged from bankruptcy Monday and announced it is moving its headquarters to Ohio. 

The company's plan to move its base from Long Island to Columbus is part of an effort to reduce costs and re-establish a footing in the fast-foot market. Roughly 40 of the company's Melville-based employees will be laid off beginning in September, the company said. 

"The company now can move forward with its plans to invest in and grow the business," said Sbarro spokesman Jonathan Dedmon. "We will be announcing progress and further plans for the business in the near future." 

The move will not affect Sbarro's 2,700 employees nationwide, including the 400 or so who work at restaurants in the New York metropolitan area, Dedmon said. 

The company filed for Chapter 11 in March, marking its second bankruptcy in less than three years.

New York's job losses are double those of the next worse sate, which is Michigan. We lost more jobs than Detroit. Keep voting Democrat/Socialist. Your job will be next.
