Ohio unemployment rate down for 10th month in a row



Published: Fri, June 15, 2012 @ 11:22 a.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s unemployment rate dropped in May for the tenth consecutive month, reaching its lowest point since October 2008 as the national rate increased slightly, officials said today.

The state Department of Job and Family Services said seasonally adjusted joblessness in Ohio decreased from 7.4 percent in April to 7.3 percent in May, and the state’s nonfarm payrolls swelled by 19,600 compared with April’s figures.

The national jobs report was bleaker as the U.S. unemployment rate increased from 8.1 percent in April to 8.2 percent in May. Only 69,000 jobs were added, the fewest in a year.

Gov. John Kasich said it’s encouraging to see Ohioans returning to work but warned the state isn’t in the clear, despite getting good news in the face of national data heightening fears that the economy is sputtering.

As people lose their benefits the numbers will become lower. I guess we can thank BO for lowering our numbers Its not because he created any more jobs. After all there still isn't enough jobs. I know the shale oil drilling will be bringing in jobs but that hasn't really started yet. There aren't that many wells being drilled right now.

okay, so 4.5 mill jobs in 25 months don't count as job creation, hhmm. Well, I guess we can give Romney the credit since he will take it anyway....There a plenty of jobs in the papers, it's a shame that ppl are so picky yet constantly complain that they don't have a job and lets blame the Black guy. Hey, it's been done for years so why stop now, right?

MzVirgoLuv Let's face it, the only thing BO has done while in office is First , blame Bush for everything. Second ,throwing any number about job creations that can''t be proven is easy. Third, he is the one that said if he couldn't fix the economy in this term he , shouldn't be re-elected. It has nothing to do with him being black. Its that he made so many promises while running for president. the last time and He has kept none of them. And they call whites the racist , the first time someone says anything bad about BO its because he's black. Wrong its because he has done nothing but waste our taxpayers money lon B.S. programs that haven't worked period.

This is because Barry Soetoro believes that all of our problems can only be solved by the govt. Last week, he clearly made the statement that the private sector is doing just fine but we need more policemen, firemen, and teachers (and, don't forget, more taxes). This is why his stimulus package has been dismal at best. As with the car bailout, Barry wanted to choose the winner, not the public. A better solution would be what I heard from former Secy. Robert B. Reich from the Clinton Admin. Exempt the first $20,000 of income from the payroll tax of every individual. This would put immediate money into the hands of all working Americans, no matter what there level of income and infuse some money into a sluggish economy. Instead, he wants to continue to play class warfare and keep putting us further into debt.
