Ohio saw its number of construction workers tumble in June.

The Buckeye State posted 176,300 construction workers for the month, down 1,900 positions — or 1.1 percent — from the previous month, according to the Associated General Contractors of America.

On a year-over-year basis, the numbers showed even greater losses.

The state lost 3,900 construction jobs — or 2.2 percent — compared to the previous June.

Across the U.S., construction jobs showed gains and losses spread evenly among states.

“Nearly all states lag their pre-recession peaks for construction jobs,” said Ken Simonson, the association’s chief economist.
