State of Working Ohio 2008
September 1, 2008
Ohio was, in most ways that matter, left out of the national economic expansion over the past six years. As the country heads back into recession, the gains for working families, nationally and especially in Ohio, have been disappointing to say the least. This Labor Day 2008 report from Policy Matters examines what has happened to wages, equity, work, productivity and unemployment in the past year and over this recovery. It calls for the presidential candidates to voice a renewed commitment to prosperity, equity, sustainability, and productivity for workers in Ohio and America.
