State of Working Ohio 2009
September 6, 2009
Ohioans are out of work at rates not seen for more than a quarter century. Many who are working have had to accept cuts in pay, reductions in hours or unpaid furloughs. Some have stopped seeking work because they fear no jobs exist, others hang on to part-time jobs though they want and need full-time employment. Wages are not rising, and for black workers, wages have dropped sharply, leading to unprecedented gaps between black and white wages and between the wages of black workers in Ohio and the nation.
