We are committing economic suicide.
States like Florida are well on their way to fully re-opening. Their elected officials understand the importance of getting people back to work, businesses re-opened, and students back to school. In Ohio we are lagging seriously behind and the consequences will be long lasting, unless we act now. The state of Ohio‘s official unemployment rate is at 8.9%, but we know from studies that the vast majority of people who lost their jobs during the coronavirus pandemic are still underemployed. In fact the underemployment rate is 23% in the state of Ohio. There’s no nice way of putting this… we are committing economic suicide. IT’S TIME to reverse this trend and to get Ohioans back to work today!
