Ohio Employment Still Below Recession Levels
More than five years after the end of the last recession, Ohio hasn’t recovered the number of jobs it had when the downturn ended. There are 47,000 fewer jobs in Ohio than in November 2001. Though there have been some ups and downs in the past year, Ohio employment was just 700 higher in September than it was a year earlier, according to seasonally adjusted payroll numbers for nonfarm wage and salary jobs released Oct. 19 by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS).
