The good news keeps coming for Texas. With 46,600 jobs added in July, the state ranked No. 1 nationwide in job growth, according to just-released data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

 

Overall in July, 36 states and Washington, D.C., added jobs. Thirteen states lost jobs and one, Iowa, saw no change. Ohio saw the largest monthly decline, losing 12,400 jobs.

 

Texas has been No. 1 in jobs added three other times this year. Unlike some other states, Texas has seen job growth across all of its major industry groups.

 

Texas also leads the nation in job creation over the last 12 months with 396,200 jobs for an annualized rate of 3.5 percent.

 

In addition to significant job growth, Texas, and Dallas-Fort Worth in particular, offers affordable housing options. To learn more, visit the award-winning ebby.com.

Texas is The Best State for Business

Well, Texas is winning awards and making headlines once again. For the tenth year in a row, Texas has been named the best state in the country for business by Chief Executive magazine. The winning bid comes as a result of a survey of more than 500 American CEOs who voted based on taxes and regulatory issues, quality of workforce, public health, and cost of living.

 

Some of the biggest contributors to this national ranking are the powerhouse companies that are based in Texas, including ExxonMobil, AT&T, Dell, and Southwest Airlines. These companies provide strong numbers for the state’s low unemployment rate. Gov. Rick Perry announced in April 2014 that the Texas economy had added 64,100 jobs.

 

“Rising job numbers and falling unemployment rates continue to equal more opportunity for Texans,” Perry said in a statement. “Every job created represents someone working to build a better life for themselves and their families, whether that means being able to own a home, send a child to college, save for retirement or make other important investments in their future.”
