Ohio Unemployment Rises

TOLEDO -- The unemployment rate is going up in Ohio. The new numbers are out and Ohio had more people out of work in October than any other state.

The number of people out of work went up from 354,000 in September to 373,000 in October. The news of more people being out of work has some shop employees worried.

Denise Labay runs Cache at Westfield Shoppingtown Franklin Park. "It does get me nervous it's been a little slower right now I think as time progesses ... I'm calling it the calm before the storm. I think people are going realize they need to get out and shop," said Labay.

The Ohio Job and Family Services director says jobs were lost in transportation, utilities, manufacturing and the hospital industry.
