Oregon April Unemployment Falls to 8% on 3,700 New Jobs

The Oregon labor situation continues to improve at a glacial pace, but string of positive jobs reports does show the state economy moving in the right direction.  The unemployment rate is down to 8% and the state added 3,700 jobs on a seasonally adjusted basis and 3,800 private sector jobs.

Given the still shaky state of the world's economies, it is welcome news.
