WHIO Reports: Jobs and the economy in the Miami Valley

This edition of WHIO Reports will take a special look at jobs and the economy here in the Miami Valley. We’ve come a long way since the recession – manufacturing is back, companies are expanding and hiring again, the stock market is doing well and unemployment is low. Still, there are challenges that remain with us. A lot of companies report that they cannot find enough people to fill the job openings.

JOB GROWTH: More than 200K jobs added in August

Guests include: Lynn Hulsey, Dayton Daily News; Angelia Erbaugh, Dayton Region Manufacturers Association, Jim Zahora, Noble Tool and Michael Colbert, Assistant County Administrator, Montgomery County.

WHIO Reports starts Sunday, Sept. 9 at 11:30 a.m.
