COLUMBUS, OH — Ohio lost more jobs than any other state in November and is on track to post its weakest job growth since 2009.

According to The Columbus Dispatch, Ohio lost 12,000 jobs in November, nearly double the 6,500 jobs cut in North Carolina, which placed second to Ohio in job losses.

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services says the losses were across various fields, including leisure and hospitality, construction and professional and business services.

Ohio took a tumble from a top spot in 2012 when it was the leader in job creation. From June 2011 to 2012, Ohio added 113,000 jobs. At that point, the state’s unemployment rate was below the national average. Now, Ohio’s jobless rate is back above the national rate.
