Ohio's unemployment rate falls to 7 percent



Published: Fri, October 19, 2012 @ 9:00 a.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s unemployment rate has dropped slightly to 7 percent after three consecutive months of holding steady at the same rate.

The state Department of Job and Family Services said today that seasonally adjusted joblessness in Ohio was 7 percent in September, down from 7.2 percent in August.

This is the last update on job numbers that the swing state’s voters will see before the election.

Additional statewide labor force data was also expected to be released later today.

The state’s unemployment rate remains below the national rate. The U.S. unemployment rate tumbled to 7.8 percent in September from 8.1 percent in August.

Gov. John Kasich downplayed Ohio’s job numbers last month, warning of a possible economic slowdown.

So I guess the lack of jobs is due to the individual governors of the states??

Funny, when the rate goes up its Obamas fault, when it goes down its to kasichs credit. Typical idiot reliarcan logic.

Kaisich is a tard who needs to be run out of office. (It was nice throwing S.B. 5 back in his FACE)

But anyway it looks like PRESIDENT Obama's plan is working.
