COLUMBUS - 

State Senator Larry Obhof (R-Medina) today announced improved Ohio jobs numbers, showing that employers added 12,400 new jobs during June. Private sector employers have now added more than 428,000 workers to their payrolls since January 2011.

"We have made significant progress to improve Ohio’s business climate and to support private sector job creation,” Obhof said. “Lower taxes, regulatory reform and new resources to help connect employers with job seekers are paying dividends in helping to improve our economy and creating new opportunities for Ohio families."

Last year, Senator Obhof sponsored Senate Bill 26 and co-sponsored House Bill 3, which cut the filing fees for starting a new business or non-profit entity by more than 20 percent. The bill also improves access to OhioMeansJobs.com, a statewide database of job openings intended to give Ohioans greater access to job opportunities by linking employers and job seekers.

More than 150,000 positions are currently posted on OhioMeansJobs.com, with more than half of those jobs paying more than $50,000 annually.
