Statement by Gov. Perry on Texas’ Job Numbers

Texas adds 33,900 jobs; lowest unemployment rate since November 2008

AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement regarding Texas’ seasonally adjusted unemployment rate dropping to 5.7 percent in January 2014, down from 6.0 percent in December 2013:

“Every day, more Texans are going to work, earning a living and supporting their families because we follow a simple recipe for job creation: we keep our taxes low, our regulations effective and predictable, our courts fair and our schools accountable. That’s why Texas has been the national epicenter for job creation for more than a decade, and today’s numbers indicate we’re not slowing down anytime soon. While Washington is unable to significantly move the needle on unemployment, in Texas we free job creators to pursue success, which means more good-paying jobs for more Texans.”
