Sometimes when you're on the bottom the only direction you can go is up.

Those new jobs are bill collectors and bounty hunters.

Did anyone else see this? What happened to the Sun Belt states being models for job growth? Weren't Republicans telling us we should be more like the Southern states?


States with the largest job gains last month:
1. Ohio (28,300)
2. Texas (27,900)
3. New York (24,700)
4. Pennsylvania (16,700)
5. Massachusetts (9,100)

So paying everyone minimum wage isn't a recipe for long term success? I'm shocked!
 
2012-03-31 11:43:54 AM
Texas's job growth is all minimum wage jobs. This place has them falling from the sky but you can't live on that if you are in the Dfw area.

You mean that no good Republican governor Kasich is doing something right? The horror.

Ohio also recently rejected its legislature's union-crushing law.

Well so much for job growth in Ohio then.

Is he still pissing hundreds of millions of dollars to lure a bankrupt (or at the very least close to bankrupt) company to Ohio while at the same time let another company flee the state?

Yes, but unlike the blue states who sit above shale gas, he has chosen to let people drill for it.

I guess you didn't mean PA. PA sold it's soul to the drilling industry a while back.

Ironically New York doesn't have any drilling (they've been trying to so hard) and they're ranked #3 in job growth over PA.

Not all of it. We just moved to Dallas for jobs and get both paid substantially more than minimum wage :)

Texas is rarely ranked first in anything other than executions, a$$holes wearing cowboy hats, and religious weirdos writing statewide educational curriculum.

Amazingly, if you adhere to a starve-the-government, feed-the-greedy financial model, your political unit doesn't thrive so well. Go figure, Publicanards.

5. Massachusetts (9,100) 6,587,536 1/723

Are you sure you want to allow [table] tags in Fark comments?
Just... think about this for a few moments before saying anything rash.

What would happen to all the trolls who claim their point is still entirely valid by claiming a sloppily constructed table does not explicitly prove they are entirely full of shiat?

Many of the Shale related jobs in PA (mostly dry gas, currently selling for just over $2.00/Mcf) are moving to Ohio, where much of the Shale produces oil and liquids rich gas.

LouDobbsAwaaaay: Ohio also recently rejected its legislature's union-crushing law.


Careful there. There's a second push for RTW, despite news like this.

Businesses can have RTW when they experience the same restrictions on indirect/temporary/contingent labor. Those forms of work, whether they come from a staffing agency or not, are the employer-side equivalent in coercive nature to a union.

How about calling it Right to Directly Work, with the idea that an employer:

• may not use indirect/temporary/contingent labor as a condition of work
• must allow the applicant to choose FTE arrangements without any raised requirements such as skill or reduce compensation of FTE, including benefits.
• cannot intimidate or otherwise spoil the choice of FTE. The same applies to retaliation.
• will experience swiftly enforced penalties if it is violated.



traxan: You mean that no good Republican governor Kasich is doing something right? The horror.


No, things are going well in spite of Kasich's mistakes. This is happening despite SB5 getting soundly rejected. Ohioans don't generally take well to extremists like him.

Always a good decision.

HotIgneous Intruder: Those new jobs are bill collectors and bounty hunters.


Not really. In the case of Dayton, they're:
a) Government Contractor
b) Government Contractor
c) Government Contractor
d) Servant of UD.

(as opposed to a decade ago when A/B could be replaced by NCR and GM, and D didn't exist in its current size)

Exception, not rule.

I presume you're talking about Sears? AFAIK, that's stopped.



while at the same time let another company flee the state?

Sounds like you're talking about National Cash Register. If you want to blame anyone, it would be:

• The State of Georgia's "Economic Development" department.
• AT&T, for their role in the initial exodus of jobs to Atlanta and their role in turning NCR into something that Daytonians barely recognized but still accepted.
• The University of Dayton, for making infinite amounts of backdoor deals, including the WHQ trophy acquisition - while demolishing more the more historical Building 26, which now serves as a UD-reserved & history-lacking aerospace research center.

Strickland merely was in disbelieving witness to it, and Kasich used it as a political issue. I've no fault with NCR at all for their response. If anything, Ohio should see about courting back NCR given the failure in Georgia to perform better - given that Georgia has a higher unemployment rate despite being one of the most "business friendly" states out there.

Yes, I'm a Ohio State fan. So far, it's making up for the football season clusterfark (previous season and next).

Living in Ohio I can say it's pretty awful here in terms of the economy. "Job Growth" is such a pointless, meaningless, useless word that people give weight to. It's not hard at all to make a job, most jobs are easily made. Of course most jobs made by politicians have the life expectancy of a fruit fly, they're only meant to live long enough for a sound bite so they're worthless beyond politics. Job growth is only meaningful if those jobs are permanent. Census worker, no. New plant opening, yes.

Unfortunately Ohio's business and tax laws are so bloody awful businesses have fled the state in droves. Not only businesses but our bright young people too and they don't come back. Can't blame them.

No, thank the businesses for unleashing pestilence for not getting their way.

Provide full amnesty for anyone that provides early and non-public information about any entity that wishes to move an Ohio entity out of state. As long as they're in Ohio, or in states that honor the amnesty, they would enjoy immunity from anything related to the disclosure.

That was a shame and farked up on so many levels. Strickland defiantely wasn't the only one to blame for that one.

But I was referring to Chiquita who is moving their headquarters from Cincinnatti to Charlotte.

Dear Ohio,
Thank you for destroying your economy and forcing your hot blond slutty daughters to leave Ohio looking for work.

Sincerely,
Washington DC
