Oregon jobless rate unchanged


PORTLAND (AP) - The unemployment rate in Oregon still has not budged after nearly a year.

The latest jobless figures show the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 10.6 percent in August, unchanged from 10.6 percent in July.

State officials say the August figures mark the 10th straight month the Oregon rate has been stuck between 10.5 percent and 10.7 percent.

But there was some improvement last month in Oregon compared to August 2009, when the state unemployment rate was 11.2 percent.
