Oregon’s unemployment remained about the same last month at 9.6%. The State's Unemployment Rate has been in that range for the last five months. State Employment Economist Nick Beleiciks says it's one step forward, two steps back. “There's some growth in private sector, but the government job loss is off setting or those month more than offsetting the private sector job growth. That's to be expected given the budget crisis we're facing, and until we see real force of growth we might see this for awhile.” The sectors that saw the most job growth were leisure and hospitality and educational and health services.
