DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Ohio’s latest unemployment data shows the state added more jobs in October, but there has also been an increase in unemployment claims.

Ohio’s unemployment rate in October was 4.2%, up from 4.0% in September.

242,000 people in the state were unemployed last month, up 10% from September.

Now, experts say there is still hope that we could see employment rates to what they were pre-pandemic.
