The State's latest unemployment numbers show Oregon is finally below 10% for the first time in several years. Governor John Kitzhaber says the State's unemployment for April fell to 9.6%. “Today's unemployment reports shows a drop of a full percentage point over the last six months. Oregon is out of double digit unemployment for the first time sine 2008. Since January, we created 16,000 jobs in Oregon, which is the 7th fastest job growth in the nation.” The Governor credited the State's private investment in people, equipment and plants for the economic improvement.
