Jackson County alone added 900 jobs in May. Seasonal hiring in construction, leisure and hospitality accounted for much of the boost.
Those sectors also boosted job gain in Josephine County which added 370 jobs in May.
Government employment added nearly half of the 330 jobs in Coos County in May and Curry County employment rose by 170 jobs, also with nearly half from leisure and hospitality gains.
