Unemployment remains 7.2%

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The state says Ohio’s unemployment rate held steady in July at 7.2 percent, matching what it was a year ago and remaining slightly higher than where it was for the first half of 2013.

Employers in the state added 5,300 jobs in July, seen as good news a month after Ohio reported the second-largest job loss for any state in June. But, the number of unemployed workers also increased by 3,000, according to data released this morning by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.

The U.S. unemployment rate for July was 7.4 percent

Job declines in construction and government employment outweighed gains in manufacturing, and leisure and hospitality.
