No Recovery for the Unemployed

Long-term unemployment remains especially high

More than four years after the end of the Great Recession, Oregon’s job market has yet to fully recover. Though down from its peak in 2009, the state’s November 2013 unemployment rate of 7.3 percent remains well above pre-recession levels.[1] Particularly acute is the problem of long-term unemployment, defined as being out of work for more than 26 weeks. More than a third of Oregon’s unemployed workers are long-term unemployed.[2]
