Oregon adds 17 new government jobs a day


An analysis by the Oregon Employment Department data on job growth shows that Oregon is adding new government jobs at a fast pace.  In 2014, Oregon added 4,600 new government jobs, 5,400 added in 2015 and 5,800 for 2016.  There are some periods where employment slows or declines, but the three year trend is fast and furious hiring.   The fast-paced hiring begs the question on whether this job explosion can be sustained by taxpayers.
