New report discuss Worksharing as a way to save jobs in Ohio

Today Zach Schiller from Policy Matters Ohio released a new report on work sharing.  You can read the report at http://www.policymattersohio.org/Worksharing2010.htm.  The report discusses how 17 other states utilize work sharing as a way to avoid layoffs of some employees by reducing hours of all employees.  Employees would receive a prorated portion of Unemployment Compensation for the hours they were reduced.  Read it and let us know what you think.
