Dec 27, 2019

The Texas Workforce Commission recently reported that the Texas seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 3.4 percent in November 2019. This marks the sixth consecutive month of record-low unemployment in Texas and the lowest unemployment rate since tracking began in 1976.

“Six months with a 3.4 percent unemployment rate is a tribute to hard-working Texans statewide,” said TWC Chairman and Commissioner Representing the Public Bryan Daniel. “As 2019 comes to a close, we will continue to implement innovative solutions to enhance worker training and allow continued growth for businesses in the new year.”

Texas added 336,700 jobs in 2019. Total nonfarm annual employment growth was at 2.7 percent in November.
