June Employment Numbers Show Continued Expansion

Gov. Greg Abbott issued a statement following the Texas Workforce Commission’s (TWC) release of June employment numbers. The numbers show a continued economic expansion as Texas employers added 55,800 jobs in the month, marking job growth in 13 of the last 14 months as the unemployment rate dropped to 6.5 percent.

“The Texas economy is booming. Businesses are investing in the Lone Star State at a record pace because we’ve built a framework that allows free enterprise to flourish and hardworking Texans to prosper,” said Abbott. “The June jobs report shows that our young, growing and skilled workforce has forged a diversified and resilient economy, with Texas employers adding back more than 1.1 million jobs since the end of April 2020, the peak pandemic impact on jobs. That surge in hiring continues today with as many jobs posted on TWC’s job sites as Texans looking for work. I encourage every Texan looking for new or better employment to use the free job matching resources available to them from TWC because Texas works when Texans work.”

There are more than 930,000 available jobs in the 866,000 online postings.
