Texas Adds 43,800 Jobs Over Last Two Months

While the national economy is still struggling to recover, employers in Texas still have a strong, positive environment for creating jobs. Under Governor Perry’s leadership Texas has maintained a business-friendly climate of no income tax, low taxes, smart and fair regulations, and tort reform legislation to establish fair courts.

Looking at these just released numbers from the Texas Workforce Commission provides some strong evidence. In October, Texas’ private sector recorded a strong annual growth rate of 2.9 percent, and Texas’ unemployment rate fell to 6.2 percent, down from 6.3 percent in September and 6.5 percent in July. Texas’ unemployment remains well below the national October unemployment rate of 7.3 percent.

Adding 267,400 jobs this year alone, Texas was home to an estimated 11,232,700 nonfarm jobs. Texas added an estimated 7,400 positions in October following an increase of 36,400 jobs in September, a total of 43,800 jobs added over the last two months.

The Texas economy continues to move forward, with every major industry showing positive growth over the last year. Texas' future continues to look bright.
