Jobs Increase in Northern and Eastern Ohio

Ohio Governors Ted Strickland and John Kasich have been serious about job creation, with startling results. Manufacturing is increasing in Northeastern Ohio since 2012, including auto parts and aerospace rocketry. In fact, the Aerospace Industry supports over 1200 companies in Ohio alone.

Technologies are keys to the future in Ohio, especially in the eastern cities and the Ohio Space Corridor running from Cincinnati to Dayton and Columbus, our Number One Technology City in the nation. The John Glenn space center is part of NASA in Cleveland.

Numbers of job listings for Cleveland Metro from 2012 - 2015 increased from 2011 - 2012 and again from 2014 - 2016. Manufacturing was boosted by auto parts, aerospace parts, and drones. Mining in NE and SE Ohio was boosted by large investments in Oil & Gas. Truck Driving boomed with new jobs beginning in 2014.
