Cincinnati, Ohio has taken its share of hits in the Great Recession.  One of the strategies businesses there have been taking to is moving lower paying jobs to the suburbs.  There’s more flexibility out there for leasing property, parking is cheap or free and the payroll taxes can be lower.  More prestigious, higher-paying jobs are staying downtown.
