By Metro Council President Tom Hughes
It's no secret that greater Portland needs to work hard to create more family-wage jobs. Even though our economy is booming, too many Oregon families are being left behind.
We've done a great job in greater Portland working together to diversify our economy, and increase the amount of high-wage, skilled jobs in Oregon. One of my main goals as Metro Council President has been to set the stage for more middle-class job creation, as well, so our region's prosperity can be shared by all.
