Oregon sheds 7,900 jobs yet jobless rate improves

Oregon’s unemployment rate fell slightly, from 8.9% to 8.7% but, as I have been saying all along, this is not the number that matters as it represents the supply and demand equilibrium.

Either way, it is further evidence of a recovery that is like an engine with a bad carburetor – it goes but in a sputtering and halting way.
