Great news for Austin and Texas that will probably not make the national press!

Out of the top 50 Metro Areas in the US, Austin ranked number one with 4,000 jobs created – a .5% positive job growth – one of only 4 metros to have year-over-year job growth. This is the second month of positive job growth for Austin. We are only 15,700 jobs short of the November 2008 peak of 783,400 Austin area jobs. Texas also had its first positive month in 15 months of year-over-year job growth. Texas created 24,000 jobs created (.2% growth) in May. Beverley Kerr of the Austin Chamber of Commerce provides more detail below.
