Job growth continues to be strong in Oregon.


State Economist Nick Bielichicks.


"Oregon has been adding jobs strongly and consistently the past eleven months.  In May, we added 4200 jobs and that's following gains of 6200 jobs in April."


In the past year, job growth has accelerated.


"Nearly all sectors are adding jobs, but construction is particularly strong.  It added 7800 jobs over the last year for a job growth rate of 10 and a half percent."


Financial activities was the only major sector without a jobs recovery.
