Census To Create 24,000 Ohio Jobs

Census has released information that there will be new jobs available soon in Ohio, Cincinnati Business Courier report:

The U.S. Census Bureau will create 24,000 new temporary jobs in Ohio, Treasurer Kevin Boyce announced Thursday.

The job numbers are far more than the 5,000 the Bureau originally announced.

The unemployment rate in Ohio is 10.5 percent, which is half a percent higher than the national rate.

“Ohio, like many other states across the U.S. has witnessed an increase in jobless rates,“ Boyce said in a news release. “These census jobs not only offer residents the opportunity to work, while they are in transition, but allow these workers to perform an important service for their community.”

A majority of the short-term jobs will be for door-to-door census takers, who will make $15.50-$16 in Cincinnati. Some assignments could last until June 2010.

The 2010 census will determine the distribution of $400 billion in government funding, as well as Ohio’s representation in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Will the census help the Ohio unemployment situation? Only time will tell.
