TWC AUSTIN ⎯ The Texas economy added 27,200 seasonally adjusted nonfarm jobs in June, which marked 24 consecutive months of employment growth. Over the year, Texas added 359,500 jobs for an annual employment growth rate of 2.9 percent.
The Texas summers are not the only thing heating up in North Texas. The region’s economy is growing at a blistering pace. DFW is growing faster than the nation – about 2 percent points faster. This outsized performance is only possible with robust labor force expansion. The DFW labor force increased 3.1 percent over the past year, while the sharing of people working or seeking employment was little changed.
