If you follow the world of traditional news and industry, you can’t help but notice the seemingly constant stream of layoffs and bad news in the media. But many news outlets don’t often emphasize the flip side: There are jobs available in San Marcos.
Texas employers created just 8,700 jobs in May, the lowest monthly gain in nine months, and the state’s unemployment rate rose sharply to 4.5 percent from 4.1 percent the month before, according to figures released Friday by the Texas Workforce Commission.
The state still outperformed the national economy, which shed 49,000 jobs in May. The U.S. unemployment rate in May was 5.5 percent. Last month statewide, employers added 5,400 in the education and health services category, and 1,700 jobs in professional and business services.
The leisure and hospitality industry gained 1,300 positions, while the construction industry added 1,100 jobs.
