Assemblyman: Work Less, Save Money

A state assemblyman says a shorter work week for some state employees would help New York deal with its budget crisis.

Queens Assemblyman Michael Gianaris is proposing a four-day work week for non-essential employees.

He says the change would save an estimated $30 million a year.

Gov. David Paterson has proposed a budget full of spending cuts and tax and fee increases to combat an estimated $15 billion deficit over two years.
