Abstract

[Excerpt] Oregon experienced the longest and deepest recession in the nation during the 1980s. More than 100,000 jobs were lost; it took fully five years to regain the 1979 level of employment. High-wage manufacturing jobs, particularly in the forest products industry were replaced by low-wage service sector jobs. By 1989 income had declined to 92% of the national average.
