Good news for Texas job-seekers-the state’s economy continues to recover at a much faster rate than the rest of the nation.
In fact, according to a recent press release from the Texas Comptroller, Texas’ economy has nearly recovered all of the jobs that were lost during the recession whereas the nation has recovered but a small fraction. From the release:
“Texas has outperformed the nation as both economies recover from the recession. The state has regained 88 percent of the jobs that were lost during the recession, while the nation has recovered 22 percent.” [emphasis mine]
By most any measure, this should speak volumes about Texas’ low-tax, limited government approach and its economic value.
