Oregon has an unemployment crisis with 181,000 people looking for work.  But, a new report shows there were nearly 23,000 jobs that went unfilled over the winter.   Jessica Nelson, with the Oregon Employment Department, says many of those jobs should be in demand.  But a third of the jobs require education beyond high school.  And jobs such as nursing require even more education.  There were about 8 unemployed people for all of the jobs that were available.
