Unemployment in Central Oregon held steady in May according to the latest numbers. Unemployment fell slightly in Crook and Deschutes County and remained the same in Jefferson County. Carolyn Eagan with work source Oregon blames the weather in part to for sluggish numbers. “In all three counties, we only had about half the hiring we would typically see in May. And we’re also seeing the total civilian labor force, so that the number of employed people plus the number of unemployed people. That number is lower than it would normally be. So that would lead me to believe that seasonal hiring, that we would expect for spring and into summer has not happened yet because of the darn cold weather.” With our temperatures starting to warm up , Eagan expects our June numbers to reflect more of our usual hiring patterns. Unemployment in Crook County is at 15%, 12% in Deschutes County and about 12.5% in Jefferson County.
