Ohio House Democratic Leader Armond Budish released the following statement praising President Obama for the continued drop in unemployment in Ohio. April’s unemployment numbers were released today showing Ohio’s unemployment rate dropped from 7.5 percent to 7.4 percent in April.
“Ohio’s continued drop in unemployment is proof that President Obama’ policies are working. This is particularly impressive in light of the massive job losses resulting from Governor Kasich’s budget cuts and other attacks on middle class workers. If the Governor and his Republican cohorts in the legislature would put aside their extremist and divisive social agenda, and instead focus on job creation, we could be putting a lot more Ohioans back to work.”
