Ohio Unemployment Falls, Continues To Outpace National Rate

The October unemployment rate for the Buckeye State was released this morning, and it comes in a full 1% lower than the national rate:

Ohio’s unemployment rate was 6.9 percent in October, down from 7.1 percent in September, according to data released this morning by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS). Ohio’s nonfarm wage and salary employment increased 13,900 over the month…

The U.S. unemployment rate for October was 7.9 percent, up from 7.8 percent in September… [Emphasis mine]

Ohio’s rate has continued to outpace the national rate ever since voters replaced failed Governor Strickland back in November 2010.  And with last Tuesday’s election results, it’s crucial now more than ever to have strong state leadership. 

When Obama’s policies start costing jobs right and left, it’s those leaders that will keep Ohio’s economy moving.
