The number of mass layoffs increased again in July in the Buckeye state, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Tuesday.
Ohio employers initiated 115 mass layoff events in July, resulting in 25,306 initial claims for unemployment insurance, according to the bureau. Those numbers are an increase over June figures that showed employers took 62 mass layoff actions, resulting in 11,541 unemployment insurance claims.
. . .
Among the states, Ohio recorded the third-highest number of initial claims in July, trailing California, with 41,741, and Michigan, with 34,561. Indiana was fourth with 15,176. The four states accounted for 45 percent of all mass layoff events and 48 percent of the initial claims for unemployment insurance.
