The very first bill to pass the House last year, which created JobsOhio, was a piece of legislation that focused specifically on job creation. At the time, Ohio’s economy had experienced several years of job losses and families were hurting. Although there is still plenty of room for improvement, the latest JobsOhio report indicates Ohio is headed in the right direction.
As Ohio moves along on its road to recovery, numbers like these are certainly good news. With 11 consecutive months of employment gains, Ohio has been one of the nation’s leaders in showing how to lead an economic recovery.
