By Taxpayer Association of Oregon

The Oregon Employment Department reports that the largest gain in median wage during the pandemic was the local government sector at $3.23 hour gain. Compare that to three otehr industries (transportation, utilities, warehouse) which saw a 20-cent gain.

The other services industry average gain was $3.19 per hour and the information industry average gain was $3.15 per hour.

For the State of Oregon to pass out raises during the pandemic it cost taxpayers over $200 million dollars.
