NEW YORK STATE (WKBW) - Nearly 200 Thruway employees are laid off because of State Budget cuts.

Road crew workers, toll collectors and administrative staff are all among those now out of work.

The Worker's Union tried to cut a last-minute deal to save at least some of those jobs, but couldn't get it done.
