According to an AP story published Saturday, Ohio has seen “nearly 25,000 jobs lost in local government” since John Kasich has been governor of Ohio. And “median incomes in Ohio have fallen about $7,000 over the past decade.”
You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand why: Kasich has cut nearly $2 Billion in state funding to local governments in the past four years in order to fund lopsided tax breaks to his rich, millionaire friends.
These lost jobs are teachers, fire fighters and police officers; your friends, family and neighbors.
Meanwhile, Ohio’s job growth has lagged the U.S. average for almost 20 months in a row. And while the U.S. has regained all of the jobs it lost during the great recession, economists calculate that Ohio is still down 139,900 jobs from our pre-recession peak.
