Why are Texas cities the best for job seekers?

Thanks to for including our statement on why Texas continues to lead the nation in job growth and economic prosperity:

Overall, the State of Texas is one of the most business-friendly states, with great partnerships between state and local economic development entities.  The State of Texas relies on local governments, which have created innovative economic development tools, making economic prosperity and job growth a policy focus in terms of tools, accountability and strategy.  Texan cities provide a business friendly climate, educated workforce, opportunity for growth and low cost of doing business; the factors that businesses consider when relocating or expanding.

Job growth can also be attributed to the continued success of the small business community in Texas.  Small businesses represent 97 percent of all employer firms in the State of Texas and include everything from innovative tech start-ups, engineering firms and construction companies.  Texan cities provide an environment conducive to the growth and development of these small businesses.  San Antonio, for example, in conjunction with Alamo Colleges, provides workforce development training to small businesses through its Business Empowerment Program; teaching small businesses the skills they need to prosper in today’s competitive markets across all industries.
