Texas, the Lone Star State, has experienced a job surge in the past two years. About 37% of all net new American jobs since the recovery began were created in Texas. That is a staggering statistic and makes Texas the hands-down leader in new jobs in the entire country.
Using Bureau of Labor Statistics State-by-state employment changes since June 2009, when the recession statistically ended, show that Texas added 265,300 net jobs, out of the 722,200 nationwide.
Texas is doing so well relative to other states precisely because it has rejected the economic model that now prevails in Washington.
