Scott Shane explains struggling employment numbers in Ohio

Report paints dismal employment picture for Ohio

The Associated Press: One in 10 Ohioans lost a job in the past decade, and workers saw a higher drop in wages than any other state, according to a report from Policy Matters Ohio. The economic structure of Ohio makes the situation worse here than in other states, said Scott Shane, A. Malachi Mixon III Professor of Entrepreneurial Studies. “States that have a lot of innovation, lots of investment in education and a lesser reliance on manufacturing have had higher per capita income growth for the past 80 years,” he said.
