The Economist: A Fresh Look at Employment Growth
August 6, 2014
National employment growth once again topped the 200,000 level in July, putting together the longest string of monthly gains of that magnitude since the late 1990s. The latest US Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows an increase of 209,000, bringing the total US job gain over the past 12 months to almost 2.3 million. While the unemployment rate ticked up very slightly to 6.2% because there were more new entrants into the workforce than jobs added, there has been notable improvement over the past year.

Texas does quite well in some of these areas, but faces notable challenges in others, particularly over the long term.  (More)

How Article Search Works

The Article search engine looks for an exact match on any word(s) in the headline or the article body.

You can choose to search only articles in a specific category (e.g., Business) or All News & Blogs.

For example, if you type in the word Floresville, the search results will include Floresville City Council Agenda, Floresville City Council Special Meeting, and any other articles that have the word Floresville in either the headline or the article body.

If you search for multiple words, let’s say the words Floresville and 775, the search results will list any articles that include both Floresville AND 775 somewhere in the headline or the article body.
