Today, the Texas Workforce Commission released labor market information in Texas for March 2017. The Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Economist Dr. Vance Ginn issued the following statement:
“Texas employers created 249,000 net nonfarm jobs in the last twelve months, with 9,500 jobs added in March alone,” said Dr. Ginn. “This brings the positive jobs creation streak to a remarkable 76 of the last 78 months. Continued improved economic growth expectations in Texas based partially on pro-growth policies discussed at the federal and state government levels look to keep job opportunities plentiful statewide.”

For more information or to request an interview with Dr. Ginn, please contact Alicia Pierce at or 512-472-2700.
