Ohio Gov. John Kasich is scheduled to join state and local officials for a jobs-related announcement in Columbus after spending much of his time recently on the presidential campaign trail.
According a media advisory from Kasich's office, the Republican governor and presidential contender plans to appear at a Wednesday afternoon event with the head of PTT Global Chemical, a giant chemical and fuel-refining company.
Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor and JobsOhio president John Minor also are slated to attend the announcement at the Statehouse.
Two commission-based sales reps are asking the Ohio Supreme Court to decide whether a constitutional amendment, approved by voters, in 2006, requires that they be paid minimum wage. The eventual ruling could have a big effect on businesses and employees throughout Ohio.
