JobsOhio Chief: Recovery is Moving in the Right Direction

In his remarks to workforce leaders, JobsOhio President and Chief Investment Officer J.P. Nauseef this week said Ohio’s recovery is showing progress, despite the COVID-related damage inflicted this spring. Nauseef told the Governor’s Executive Workforce Board that May’s unemployment rate dropped to 13.7% compared to April’s 17.6%.

He also spotlighted several recently announced economic development projects, including that of OMA member Cerelia, a producer of ready-made doughs and baked goods. Cerelia will expand its facility in Whitehall, investing more than $2 million and creating 40 new food production jobs, according to reports. 7/1/2020
