BOSTON (CBS) — A stalled economic recovery has cost the city of Boston more than 1,000 jobs over the past couple of years.

With little to no funding help from federal or state funding sources municipalities are struggling to stay on budget. Boston is no exception. The city has cut 1,050 jobs over the past couple of years.

Mayor Tom Menino says some of those cuts were efficiency cuts, meaning jobs that had outlived their usefulness.

The mayor will be presenting a new budget to the city council next month.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Karen Twomey reports.

    Maybe the jobs had outlived their usefulness but more likely they were unnecessary to beginwith.

    Wow did they have that many people sitting around obviously doing nothing! Can’t wait to see how many go when they find the ones that look like their working but still aren’t doing anything!

    Problem is, the government is in the business of keeping people employed, instead of getting things done.
