President-Elect Trump’s Proposed Economic Plans and Possible Impact on Oregon Jobs

“Bringing jobs back” was one of the central promises that president-elect Trump made on the campaign trail. The company that kept those jobs in Indiana did so in part because of $700,000 in annual tax breaks over a 10 year period, provided by the state in a deal brokered by Mike Pence, who is still the governor of Indiana before he takes the office of vice president in January.

Those kind of tax breaks are not necessarily the most economical way to preserve jobs, and any effort by Mr. Trump to bring lost jobs back to key industries in Oregon is going to involve big changes in international trade deals or access to land that is currently owned by the federal government.

Central Oregon Daily’s Curtis Vogel takes a look at how some of Mr. Trump’s proposed economic policies could impact Oregon jobs.
