The jobless rate in Oregon is 8.3%.  But that number covers up a much higher rate in rural communities.  State Senator Ted Ferrioli gave the example of 17% unemployment in Grant County and wondered if it is because of unions or one party dominance in Oregon or the “goofy” land use system.  He also pointed out that Oregonians on average earn $5,000 less than the national average.
