Little To No Change In Southern Oregon Unemployment Rates

By Jim McCoy Mon 18th August Newseconomyjobs
Counties around southern Oregon experienced a loss of jobs during the month of July. Economists say this is to be expected due to seasonal reductions in local government education employment. Jackson County's seasonally-adjusted unemployment remained at 8.5 percent, and Josephine County's stayed at 9.6. On the coast, Coos County's dropped slightly from 8.9 to 8.8 percent, and Curry County's dipped from 10.7 to 10.6. Across the board, all four counties have lower unemployment than they did in July of 2013.
