A new report from the Oregon Employment Department shows that The Salem Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), which includes Marion and Polk counties, is among just 11 counties that now have employment above their pre-recession peak in December of 2007.

 

The reported noted that the Salem MSA employment was more stable during the recession than the state's due to the strong presence of a food manufacturing sector and a large presence of state government in the region.
