Job Growth In Texas - Texas Scorecard

Found a fun fact in a mailer from Gov. Rick Perry today. Over the last 12 months, Texas has seen 262,000 jobs created — 95 percent in the private sector. Compare that to the national scene, 462,000 jobs were created — and half of which were government jobs. Dig a little deeper: nearly 100% of the private sector jobs created in the U.S. over the last 12 months were created in Texas!
