That breaks down to five unemployed people for each opening.

 

Healthcare and social services account for 22 percent of all the state vacancies.  

 

In central Oregon, Leisure and Hospitality actually have the most openings.

 

State Employment Economist Jessica Nelson says central Oregon workers saw hourly wages slightly below the state average and fewer prime jobs.

 

"Across the region, central Oreogn had fewer full time and permanent jobs as a share of total jobs and tha'ts due to Leisure and Hospitality popping up so large."

 

The average wage in central Oregon is $17.31 a nhour -- which is slightly below the state average of $17.92 an hour.
