WICHITA FALLS, TX - New jobs numbers indicate that the North Texas and Lone Star State economy is healthier than ever. The latest jobs numbers from June 2017 were recently released by Workforce Solutions over the weekend. Workforce solutions Executive Director Mona Statser said that unemployment is hovering at a healthy 4.6%-4.8% according to the data.
Statser says that the numbers really can't get any lower than where they already are. She adds that data even shows more of the new hires are people in Texoma taking on a second job.
"When you're at and below 5% unemployed, everybody is employed who's going to be, but there is still a lot of job switching going around," said Statser.
For now, Statser said she predicts that the local and state economy will stay relatively healthy with regular incoming and outgoing hires and layoffs. She adds that Workforce Solutions remains dedicated to helping people find work they need. You can learn more about what they have to offer by clicking HERE.
