According to The Texas Workforce Commission, Texas unemployment hit a 40-year low in October.
The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC)Â reportedÂ Friday that the Lone Star State led the nationÂ adding 316,100Â jobs over the past year including 71,500 last month.Â Texas joblessness for October came in at 3.9 percent, below the national monthly unemployment rate of 4.1 percent. In 2017, the stateâ€™s unemployment rateÂ peakedÂ at 5 percent in April, dropping each month thereafter. In September, itÂ fell to 4 percent.
â€œBy adding an impressive 71,500 jobs over the past month and 316,100 jobs over the year, Texas employers have once again demonstrated their unmatched innovation and ability to achieve success in our countryâ€™s premier place to do business,â€ said TWC Chairman Andres Alcantar in a prepared statement. â€œThis economy provides valuable opportunities for the highly skilled Texas workforce to also achieve success.â€
Texas is continuing its great economic growth. With Trump at the helm, unemploymentÂ is continuing to shrink all acrossÂ America and especiallyÂ in Texas. The Mainstream Media continuesÂ to push the nonsenseÂ narrative that Trump isn’t helping his supporters and this couldn’t be further from the truth.
