Where did all the restaurant and hotel workers go? | Business

Overall, Oregon businesses are on the verge of fully recovering all jobs lost from the COVID-19 pandemic recession. As of June 2022, total nonfarm employment levels were only 0.9 percent below the previous peak.

However, when looking over the recovery by industry, we see a fairly large disparity. For some industries, employment is now far higher than pre-pandemic levels, such as construction (transportation, warehousing and utilities), real estate (rental, and leasing) and professional and technical services. Meanwhile other industries remain below their previous peak, such as educational services, leisure and hospitality, local government and other services.
