The Lowest Unemployment in Texas is Right Here in San Antonio

By April 1, 2009

Amongst all the major Texas cities, good ole San Antonio ranks the lowest in something that we can be proud of -- unemployment.

According to Workforce Solutions Alamo, 7,700 jobs were created in the Alamo City in February, which helped the overall unemployment rate go from 6.3% down to 6%.

That was enough to give the city a lower unemployment rate than nearby Austin at 6.3%, Houston at 6.4% and Dallas/Fort Worth at 6.9%. Compare that to a national average of 8.9% and you will see just how well the city is doing compared to other parts of the country. It's a great time to be a Texan. Or at least a Texas resident.
