The Friday morning report coming from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services will show April employment data across sectors such as construction, manufacturing and health care.

The March report showed that Ohio had 295,000 unemployed workers, up 5,000 from a revised 290,000 unemployed workers in February. The state saw gains in industries including education and health services, financial activities and information.

The sectors with the biggest job losses were construction and the leisure and hospitality industry.
