Wages and income are increasing in Northwest Oregon – and by more than enough to keep up with inflation.

From 2010 through 2020 the average wage – including full and part-time jobs – increased 35% in Benton County, 36% in Clatsop County, 39% in Columbia County, 41% in Lincoln County, and 44% in Tillamook County. That seems great, until we remember that inflation increased also during that time.
