Franklin County Unemployment- 9.2%
This is lower than the alarming than the statewide unemployment rate– 11.2% — that has occurred on Gov. Ted Strickland’s watch, but wouldn’t it be fun to see what would happen to this number if OSU and public sector jobs were not included?
Unemployment increased in six of central Ohio’s seven counties last month, according to data released today by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.
Franklin County’s unemployment rate rose to 9.2 percent in July, up from 9 percent in June. The jobless rate in Licking County decreased slightly to 10.2 percent in July from 10.3 percent in June.
