The unemployment rate remains at 6.8 percent, but the state lost 43-hundred jobs in June.

 

State Economist Nick Bielichicks explains the numbers.

 

"We're seeing a lot of job growth.  More people are joining the labor force encouraged by the improving economy.  They might not find a job right away though and that keeps the unemployment rate a little higher.  It doesn't fall as fast as you'd think it would."

 

consturction is one of the industries that lost jobs last month.

 

Manufacturers, business services and leisure and hospitality also lost jobs.  Although private education and healthcare providers did see job growth.

 

Oregon's job loss in June wiped out the job growth gained in May.
