Cory Booker appears on radio show
Newark Mayor Cory Booker appeared on 88.3 WBGO for his monthly radio appearance.
Among the topics the mayor discussed on the show were pending layoffs in Newark.
"There will be hundreds of layoffs," Booker said. "This is something that will be incredibly difficult."
According to the mayor, 80 percent of the city's budget goes toward personnel costs.
Originally, 2,000 layoffs were proposed, but Booker said the more likely number will be in the hundreds.
