Job Recovery Continues to Elude Oregon

Read the report Job Recovery Continues to Elude Oregon

Oregon Center for Public Policy (OCPP) analysis of unemployment and jobs figures released today shows that Oregon’s economy remains too weak to absorb unemployed workers or continued growth in the working-age population. The new figures from the Oregon Employment Department are a blow to hopes that Oregon’s economy might finally be experiencing a job recovery. The gap between jobs and the working-age population has grown to 150,000 since 2001. The number of unemployed Oregonians remains above 160,000, and the elimination of extended Unemployment Insurance benefits programs is leaving thousands of workers empty-handed each month.
