Oregon’s unemployment rate fell to 9.6% in April. That's the lowest level in the State since December of 2008.  State Economist Nick Beleiciks says in April alone, the State added 1600 jobs. “Well leisure and hospitality added the most jobs in April. Education and health services, which continued to add jobs throughout the recession, didn't stop. And manufacturing which was hit hard during the recession has really started to show some job growth.” Construction, banking, insurance and real estate continue to struggle at recessionary levels.
