Anemic job growth continues in Central Oregon. The latest job numbers show unemployment is increasing in all three counties. WorkSource Oregon Economist Carolyn Eagan says this is the third month in a row that Deschutes County has delivered fewer jobs than expected. “I think employers have learned to do the same work with fewer people. And I also think there's a lot of uncertainty. The risk of bringing on one additional employee may just be too high a risk right now.” Deschutes County's Unemployment is 12.5%, Jefferson County is at 13% and Crook County is at 15.3%.
