Texas job development continues to outpace the rest of the country.

Another jobs report failed to live up to the experts' projections when the labor department reports 74 thousand new jobs last week.  No problems here in The Lone Star State.  We're a jobs machine. 

Ray Perryman, president of the Texas-based Perryman Group, says many of the new jobs are good ones.

“We've seen a lot of growth in the techology sector.  Those tend to be high-paying jobs,” Perryman explains.  “A lot of growth in business services.  Those tend to be high-paying jobs.  A lot of growth in the energy sector.”

Perryman says there are a lot of reasons for the statewide success.

“Very good cost structure, we have a good location in Texas,” he says, “a reasonably strong and growing workforce in Texas, our regulatory climate is fairly favorable.”
