Ohio Unemployment Down Again
Listen to the Story
The latest jobless report paints another optimistic picture of the Ohio economy.
“It’s the 14th consecutive month that the unemployment rate has fallen,” says Ben Johnson from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.
The April report is especially significant, Johnson says, because it means Ohio once again has a lower jobless rate than the national average.
We are below the national average, which was nine percent in April. Ohio’s unemployment average dipped below the national average last November. Before last November, the last time Ohio’s rate was lower than the national average was 2002,” Johnson says.
Overall, about 8,600 Ohioans went back to work last month. Service industries and professional and business services performed the best. Leisure and hospitality lost the most positions, and state officials say about a half million Ohioans remain out of work.
