SALEM, OR -- More Oregonians are looking for work. "Oregon's unemployment rate rose to 5.2% in July, that's up from 4.8% in June," says Employment Department Economist David Cooke. The national jobless rate is now slightly lower at 4.9%

 

Cooke says the state added 3,800 jobs, last month. "That's indicating that the labor market isn't quite as tight as we thought it was back then. We're seeing a little bit of a slowdown in the rate of job growth." Health care, professional & business services and leisure & hospitality all saw gains. Manufacturing and construction lost jobs in July.
