Irving, Texas. May 16, 2014

Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement on the addition of 64,100 jobs to the Texas economy in April 2014. Over the year, Texas has added 348,000 jobs. For April 2014, the state’s unemployment rate dropped to 5.2 percent, the lowest rate since September 2008.

“Rising job numbers and falling unemployment rates continue to equal more opportunity for Texans,” Gov. Perry said. “Every job created represents someone working to build a better life for themselves and their families, whether that means being able to own a home, send a child to college, save for retirement or make other important investments in their future.”
