We live in central Oregon. This fall my husband was laid off from his job in the construction industry. He utlized all of the resources the state offers but could not find a position that would pay enough to meet our monthly budget needs. He has now relocated out of state to work and is making considerably more than he was able to here in Oregon. I have remained in Bend because of professional responsibilities I have here plus we could not even consider selling our home right now because of the housing market. Unfortunately, we can't see an upside right now to the downturn other than we are thankful that he has been able to get some work elsewhere. Thanks.
