Ohio unemployment rate dropped slightly in April

Published: Fri, May 17, 2013 @ 10:10 a.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio’s unemployment rate fell slightly to 7 percent in April after being stuck at 7.1 percent the two previous months, according to state data released today.

The mostly static seasonally adjusted rate so far this year followed months of incremental decreases, according to numbers from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. But Ohio’s jobless rate still has remained below the national rate, which was 7.5 percent in April and 7.6 percent in March.

In April 2012, the Ohio jobless rate was 7.4 percent.

Amusing that when unemployment went up it was President Obama that was responsible but when it goes down Governor Kasich is responsible. OK everyone shout... unemployment was going down before Kasich was in office.

Uncommon Unemployment only went up after Obammy got into office. What has Obammy done to lower the unemployment in Ohio? NOTHING Gov. Kasich is working hard to lower it , not like OBAMMY who's always out campaigning instead of working on these problems. Oh yeah, Obammy great stimulis plan that went to hell in a hand basket. Why don't you just admit it you are OBAMMY lover, and you feel he can't do no wrong!!!!!!
