When Ted Strickland was governor, Ohio's unemployment rate soared to over 10 percent. On his watch, employers left the state and good-paying jobs disappear. 1200 jobs were lost in Dayton when NCR moved to Georgia. 400 jobs lost in Cincinnati when U.S. Playing Card Company moved to Kentucky. Over 100 jobs were lost in Columbus, when Axiobionics moved to Michigan and General Products Corporation moved to Indiana.
