(Salem, OR)  --  A typical one-bedroom apartment is now out of reach for an average Oregon renter.  "The Oregonian" reports on a national survey that shows that a renter would have to earn 36-thousand-161 dollars a year to pay the rent.  The average Oregon renter makes about 65 dollars less than that.  In Portland, even a studio apartment would bust the budget, and in most rural areas of the state a minimum wage earner couldn't afford a one-bedroom.
