22 Dec 2023
Governor Greg Abbott today celebrated the unrivaled strength of Texas’ robust economy following the release of November employment data showing Texas continues to lead the nation in annual jobs growth, adding more jobs over the last 12 months than any state in the nation. Texas also again set three new record highs for total jobs, the number of Texans working, and the size of the Texas labor force.
“Texas dominates as America’s jobs engine, again adding more jobs over the last 12 months than any state in the nation,” said Governor Abbott. “I am proud that more Texans are working than ever before, thanks to employers who continue to invest and grow jobs here. Texas serves as a beacon of opportunity, proving that when given the freedom to aspire and the foundation to succeed, businesses flourish and people prosper. As we look to the new year, we will continue to work together and safeguard the promise of an even bigger, brighter Texas for generations to come.”
