Here’s a chart from Innovation Ohio showing Ohio’s unemployment rate compared to the nation:
They repeat much of what I said before: Ohio’s unemployment ranks are growing, the ranks of the employed is shrinking, and the number of people either working or looking for work in Ohio has nosedived since, well, right around the time John Kasich’s “Jobs Budget” was being passed.
During this time, Kasich has been going around the nation talking about how job creators love what he’s doing in Ohio to “remove barriers” to job creation. So, when are those job creators going to, you know, start creating jobs in Ohio, then?
Looks like the nation is doing better economically under Obama than Ohio is under Kasich. You don’t think all this talk about job creators on strike over regulations may be just right-wing nonsense? Nah, couldn’t be.
