    Ohio unemployment insurance is among the most stringent, where a worker has to fulfill very strict parameters as compared to other states. It is obligatory for an unemployed worker (seeking for benefits) to have earned 27.5% of weekly wage (on an average) of the state or earn $172 every week. This should have been earned for at least 20 weeks. In other words, this requires a worker to work for 33 hours every week at a stretch over a span of 20 weeks for being eligible. For these reasons it is often said that the high standards set by the Ohio unemployment insurance program impacts negatively the workers who are poor and do not meet the wage requirements of the program.
