Ohio Employment Down 50,000 since Recession
Six years after the official end of the last recession, the state hasn’t recovered the number of jobs it had when the downturn ended. There are 50,000 fewer jobs in Ohio than in November 2001, according to seasonally adjusted payroll numbers for nonfarm wage and salary jobs released Dec. 21 by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS).
