Oregon’s unemployment remains essentially unchanged in January. Our unemployment stands around 10.5%. But Economist David Cooke says we've seen several consecutive months of increasing job growth. “Oregon has seen strong payroll employment gains over the last four months: in October, up 6800, November up 2400, December up 4000 and January up 6300.” Educational and health services, leisure and hospitality and manufacturing all added more jobs than usual in January.
