PORTLAND, OR -- Oregon saw the most job growth last month since 1990.  The state is now back to pre-recession employment levels, with 11,000 jobs added in November.  State Economist Nick Beleiciks says more Oregonians are working than before the recession started in 2007.  "After seven yeras, Oregon's payroll employment finally rose above that pre-recession peak.  Seasonally adjusted payroll employment jumped to a record of over one million seven hundred and forty thousand jobs, which is three thousand jobs above the prior peak reached in December 2007."

 

Six major industries added more than one thousand jobs each -- including retail, professional and business services and leisure and hospitality.
