Brilliant!

The counties with the fastest senior growth are in the Willamette Valley (major Oregon population areas, regardless of age) or around the Bend area ( a huge Californian retirement area).

This article is pure clickbait.

You could probably map all the larger hospitals in Oregon and find out that those areas have more seniors living in them than others.

20% of the population of Roseburg lives in some form of senior housing, like assisted living or adult foster care. It represents the largest single source of cash flow for the community. You do not want to be at Bi-Mart at 10 AM on Lucky Number Tuesday. Outfits like Riverview Terrace or Linus Oaks run hourly buses to the casino in Canyonville.

BTW, if you have a player's club card from Seven Feathers, you get a 3 cent discount on gas at the truck stop.

Or on Wednesdays when SS checks show up.

SS checks show up on your birth date each month. If you were born on the 10th, they come on the 10th. At least that's how it works for direct deposit.

It doesn't work that way for me. My direct deposits are made on the second Wednesday of every month.

I found this interesting: "Oregon's 65-and-older population is growing faster than the nation as a whole... Oregon is a retirement destination. Portland has for decades attracted more 40-and-older, college-educated people than any other major metro."

Although I've never thought of Oregon as a 'retirement destination' it does make sense in a number of ways. While most Oregonians would like to keep their children in-state after reaching adulthood, there are not always the career opportunities for them to do so. Both neighboring states to the north and south offer more overall.

Then there was this: "Older adults are one of the few increasing natural resources we have. How are we able to leverage that?"

I've never really thought about it this way. But yes, all these retirees will need services. So that is something that can create jobs in the medical field, for example.

This is the part I find the most concerning regarding growing the economy and attracting new talent. "The wave of retirements will likely put a damper on productivity, including job and wage growth. The state will be more dependent on young workers moving from elsewhere to keep the economy growing, said Josh Lehner, a state economist."

Yep. Me neither. Always the fourth Wed. of the month. But it is within days of my birth date.

...and mine come on the 4th Tuesday, seldom on my B-day.

So they call us old people a "natural resource" that's funny. Maybe economist should be a threatened and endangered species? Maybe Lehner should realize retired people don't take away jobs, we make make new jobs and supply a steady income to local business.
