Ohio construction jobs up, bucking national trend

Ohio saw an uptick in the number of construction jobs in November as the national construction employment picture continued to look bleak, the Dayton Daily News reports.

The Associated General Contractors of America said November construction employment in Ohio improved 2.6 percent to 170,900 jobs, up from 166,500 jobs a year ago, the newspaper reports.

Construction employment fell in 146 out of 337 metropolitan areas due in part to the number of temporary jobs that were eliminated, the newspaper reports.
