Another positive employment report in Central Oregon for the month of April. The latest numbers show unemployment in Deschutes and Jefferson Counties just over 12% and Crook County at 15%. They all fell by half a percentage point compared to March. Carolyn Eagan with WorkSource Oregon says leisure and hospitality jobs increased by almost four hundred positions, compared to last year at this time. “One thing I noticed when I look at the growth of leisure and hospitality, it really recognized the significant work that Visit Bend is doing. They're bringing significant events and its adding to the tourism dollars coming into town.” Leisure and hospitality lead job growth in Deschutes County last month. The biggest job losses came in local government.
