According to The Texas Workforce Commission, Texas unemployment hit a 40-year low in October.
The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) reported Friday that the Lone Star State led the nation adding 316,100 jobs over the past year including 71,500 last month. Texas joblessness for October came in at 3.9 percent, below the national monthly unemployment rate of 4.1 percent. In 2017, the state’s unemployment rate peaked at 5 percent in April, dropping each month thereafter. In September, it fell to 4 percent.
“By 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 country’s premier place to do business,” said TWC Chairman Andres Alcantar in a prepared statement. “This economy provides valuable opportunities for the highly skilled Texas workforce to also achieve success.”
Texas is continuing its great economic growth. With Trump at the helm, unemployment is continuing to shrink all across America and especially in Texas. The Mainstream Media continues to push the nonsense narrative that Trump isn’t helping his supporters and this couldn’t be further from the truth.
