Rep. Ashford: Job Numbers Continue to Reflect Tale of Two Ohios

Middle-class Ohioans still waiting on Kasich's 'Ohio Miracle'

COLUMBUS – Today’s state job numbers showed that 31,000 more Ohioans are out of work than at this time last year. House Democratic Whip Michael Ashford (D-Toledo) released the following statement in response to the update on Ohio’s stalled economic recovery:

 “While Gov. Kasich claims that ‘Ohio is going in the right direction,’ the jobs numbers continue to illustrate the negative consequences of his misguided economic policies. Hundreds of thousands of unemployed Ohioans are not experiencing the ‘Ohio miracle’ that Gov. Kasich touts as he continues to cut taxes for the wealthy. It seems that Gov. Kasich and the GOP leadership are living in a different Ohio than the middle-class Ohioans that continue to wait for the economic recovery to come to our state.”
