Cleveland's Unemployment Climbs (10.1%)
Tuesday, July 22, 2008 2:42 PM


Cleveland's unemployment rate went into double digits last month, and southeast Ohio's Morgan County was almost there, according to new state figures.

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services says among the state's largest cities, Cleveland had the highest jobless rate for June, at 10.1 percent. Meigs led the counties, with an unemployment rate of 10 percent.

Columbus and Cuyahoga Falls shared last month's lowest unemployment rate among cities: 5.7 percent.

Delaware, Holmes and Mercer counties tied for the lowest county rate, all with joblessness at 4.9 percent.

On Friday, officials said Ohio's statewide unemployment rate for June was 6.6 percent, up from 6.3 the month before.

4. Are they even counting people unemployed so long they're off the rolls?
Just wondering, 'cause I think that would bump all the number upward by 2%-10%. It's been a bad seven years.
