You might not think Las Vegas and Houston have something in common with Portland.  But they do.

According to Oregon Live. Com,  employment growth in the Portland metro (June 2013-June 2014) was eighth fastest in the country. (3.1%)   That’s a tie with both Houston and Las Vegas.

A workforce analyst says the Portland-area construction industry is adding jobs almost twice fast as any other sector.
