Ohio jobs continue to edge higher
Ohio employment continues to edge higher, according to the latest seasonally adjusted payroll numbers issued June 17 by the Ohio Department of Job & Family Services. The state has gained 25,000 jobs since January, the recent low point in employment. However, nonfarm wage and salary employment still remains well below where it was when the recession officially ended in November, 2001, and 159,300 or 2.8 percent below where it was when the recession began in March of that year.
