Ohio Jobless Rate Dips To 8.5 Precent In November

Ohio's unemployment rate has dropped by a half a percentage point, to 8.5 percent in November from an even 9 percent in October.

The state's Department of Job and Family Services says 30,000 fewer people were unemployed in Ohio last month. The number of jobless workers has gone down by 69,000 in the past 12 months.

Ohio payrolls outside of farms grew by 6,000 in November, led by hiring in services. Manufacturing jobs increased, but those gains were offset by losses in construction.

New Map Gives Wright-Patterson Air Force Base One Representative

Ohio's new congressional map consolidates a major air force base into a single district.

Southwest Ohio officials had said earlier they wanted Wright-Patterson Air Force Base to continue to have at least two representatives in Congress. However, the Dayton Daily News reports that they're confident the base's interests will be protected.

The base will be fully in the 10th District, which also pits Republican incumbents Mike Turner and Steve Austria.
