Takeaways

  • Portland is a middle-class city with a balanced economy, but the share of middle-wage jobs is getting smaller.
  • Middle-wage jobs that don’t require college degrees are concentrated in industrial districts.
  • Communities of color and East Portlanders rely disproportionately on Columbia Corridor/industrial district jobs.
  • The Comprehensive Plan Update is an opportunity to better align land use, transportation, and education with middle-wage job growth potential.
