Once again, Texas is the place to live and work! I guess if you’ve been here any length of time, you’ve gotten used to the even keel of our economy – but if you were here 20 years ago and trying to find a job or buy a house – or had money in a S&L, you knew what type of shape our wonderful state was in – awful! We were dependent on oil, which went bust, our real estate went bust, the S&L’s went bust – Texas crashed. However, Texas worked hard on bringing in diverse industries not dependent on oil and our real estate prices have not escalated like in other areas of the country. The result – THE place now that others are wanting to move! We’ve got the lowest unemployment and the top 5 cities for work/new jobs are all in Texas!
