Analysis Shows Ohio Has Lost More Than 14 Thousand Jobs So Far This Year

A new survey by the executive firm Challenger, Gray and Christmas shows Ohio had the fourth-most job losses of any state in May. 

Spokesperson Andrew Challenger says the state lost 400 jobs in May, bringing the state's yearly total to more than 14 thousand. 

In addition to retail, Challenger says the health care-products sector and the services sector had the most job cuts.  Restructurings and store closures are the biggest reasons for the job cuts.
