Oregon Unemployment Numbers Falling

jobsSALEM, Ore. — The latest state’s unemployment rate has fallen to a five-year low.

Oregon’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate dropped to 7.7% last month. That’s down from 7.8% in September and from 8.1% in August.

Oregon’s Employment Department says, as a whole, the numbers show that the economy is improving at a gradually accelerating pace.

Since this time last year, employment is up nearly 2% with an added 30,000 jobs.

    This is a complete fallacy. The numbers don’t show that the economy is improving, it shows that many people are loosing unemployment benefits. The added jobs are part time/temporary Walmart and McDonalds wage slaves, not paid enough to live but can certainly quality for food stamps.

    The economy is worse than ever. Don’t be fooled! Mainstream media is pounding propaganda into our tiny little heads that things are getting back to ‘normal’. What is normal?? What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly. Nothing will ever be as it was.
