The article discusses a report, commissioned by Housing Works, a public corporation dedicated to providing affordable housing programs in Central Oregon, on the housing affordability crisis in the region. The report indicated that the increasing housing prices in Central Oregon have caused a labor shortage in Deschutes, Jefferson and Crook counties. It estimates that about 5,200 jobs are going unfilled in the area due in part to the housing affordability crisis.
