Governor Greg Abbott today celebrated the might of the Texas economy and workforce as new February employment data shows Texas leading the nation for jobs added over the month and over the last 12 months, again setting new historic highs for employment. With this new employment data, Texas has gained more than 2 million jobs since January 2015.
“Texas is where the American dream lives, where businesses flourish and people prosper," said Governor Abbott. "I am proud that more Texans are working than ever before as Texas has added more than 2 million jobs since I took office in 2015. Texas continues to lead the nation thanks to our innovative businesses and our strong and growing workforce. But we cannot become complacent. This session, we will continue cutting property taxes and investing in workforce development, infrastructure upgrades, and strategic economic development tools to build the Texas of tomorrow.”
