OHIO JOB PICTURE BLEAK AND BLEAKER
Submitted by Roldo on Fri, 03/20/2009 - 13:43.
Ohio’s jobs picture looks more than dismal. It’s pathetic.
George Zeller, economic research analyst, reports that in 2008 the State of Ohio lost 146,900 jobs.
The first two months of 2009 look even worse: 71,400 jobs lost.
That’s 218,300 since the beginning of 2008. That’s a lot of families.
A lot of pain.
If you read this morning’s Plain Dealer you’ll see there’s not much let up in the economic climate here. KeyCorp cut some 100 jobs in the Greater Cleveland area and another item reveals a private jet company cutting 105 jobs at the Cuyahoga County Airport.
Zeller’s full report is available here: http://www.nacs.net/%7Egeorgez/ohusajob0309.pdf
