Oregon Unemployment 9.5% in July

The new employment numbers are out the and news is dismal.  The unemployment rate is still stuck at 9.5% with only 300 new jobs added on a seasonally adjusted basis.  This means that the Oregon economy has added a total of 400 jobs since February.  Oregon's experience is essentially the same as the national trends which signals a stalled recovery.
