Oregon's July Unemployment Rate Ticks Up Slightly


Leisure and Hospitality businesses continued to show growth, while construction and government jobs are down.

 

State Economist Nick Bieliciks anlayzes the numbers.

 

"We saw an increase in unemployment.  It's similar to what we've seen in recent years.  It has to do more with entrants coming into the labor force.  An example of this would be a student looking for a summer job, but unalbe to find one."

 

The state has added an average of 29 hundred jobs a month in the past ten months.
