TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) – The Manpower employment agency released a national report Tuesday concluding Toledo will be a hot spot for employment.

The agency surveyed employers in Toledo and other cities. The report states 27 percent of employers plan to hire in the Glass City this summer. That puts Toledo fourth-highest in the nation in the survey results.

Bruce Rumpf from Job1USA sees a definite flow ahead based on modest job growth numbers from 2009 to 2010.

“If we merely duplicate that… in three years, or 2014, we’ll actually be back to pre-recessionary employment figures,” said Rumpf.

A different report released in January by a Boston economics firm concludes Toledo will not regain pre-recession job levels until 2025.
