Ohio Jobless Rate Keeps Climbing.
Listen to the Story
Ohio’s unemployment rate has climbed further, one month after crossing into double digits for the first time in more than a quarter century.
The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services reported today that the state’s jobless rate in May was 10.8 percent, up from 10.2 percent in April. Unemployment last month was 4.5 percentage points higher than a year ago, when the state’s rate was 6.3 percent.
Department Director Douglas Lumpkin says May’s job gains in services were mostly offset by continued losses in manufacturing. He says unemployment rose as workers re-entered Ohio’s labor market and many were unable to find jobs.
Officials say Ohio had 646,000 unemployed workers last month, up from 609,000 in April.
