Unemployment is worse than we thought

Last month, I reported on a Buckeye Institute for Public Policy study that detailed the sluggish employment growth in Ohio in the last twenty years. It turns out they were too optimistic, as director Matt Meyer said to Bob Connors at Columbus radio station WTVN yesterday.

Mr. Meyer attributes the employment problem to Ohio's high cost of government and favorable climate for unions. He does not believe the situation will significantly improve until Ohio becomes a Right to Work state, like 22 Southern and Western states which have cheerfully accepted businesses emigrating from Ohio during that period.
