Nation's best job growth trims Texas unemployment to 5.1 percent
from The Dallas Morning News
Texas employers added more jobs than any other state in May, and if that pace continues, economists say this year could be a record-setting one for the state. Texas saw an increase of 56,400 jobs in May after adding 62,400 in April, the biggest monthly gains in four years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The April figure was revised down from an initial 64,100. The state jobless rate dipped from 5.2 percent in April to 5.1 percent — well below the U.S. rate of 6.3 percent last month.
