Ohio's jobless rate inches downward again



Published: Fri, December 21, 2012 @ 12:46 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s unemployment rate continued its slow downward march in November, state officials reported today.

The Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services said the state’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for November was 6.8 percent — down slightly from 6.9 percent in October and 7.1 percent in September.

It’s the lowest since an identical 6.8-percent rate in August 2008, and it’s down more than a full percentage point from November 2011, when it stood at 8.1 percent.

Ohio’s unemployment rate has remained below the national rate, which was 7.7 percent in November and 7.9 percent the previous month.

AAC & blah You two still don't get it do you. We have a governor who is doing things to get jobs here. Obammy is looking at how to kill jobs in OHIO. He is causing COAL mines to shut down. But with you two that's okay because he is demoncrat. I guess you two don't like it when republican does well for Ohio.

Suggest removal:
