Representative Jason Conger is happy we're seeing more jobs, but he's concerned about our dwindling middle class.

 

"There are a lot of long term problems we need to address, like where jobs are being created, not in the middle class.  And the long term unemployment.  Are people getting jobs or dropping out of the workforce or are they staying on unemployment because they don't have opportunities because they can't find a good job."

 

Conger says since the beginning of this year, central Oreogn has seen 32-hundred new jobs.
