Oregon Jobless Rate Falls to Lowest Point in Two Years

(Portland, OR) -- Oregon's jobless rate has fallen to its lowest point in two years -- to three-point-seven percent. This is the closest it has been to pre-pandemic levels since late 2019, when the rate dipped to a record low of three-point-four percent. The fields with the highest job gains last month were healthcare and social assistance. State officials say Oregon has lagged slightly behind the national jobs recovery. Nationally, the country has recovered 95 percent of the jobs lost due to the pandemic and Oregon has recovered about 88 percent.
