Houston and Texas economies continue to recover from the oil and gas downturn as employment growth continues for the 24th consecutive month.
Houston area employers added jobs for the ninth consecutive month in June, reflecting an uptick in overall hiring as the region continues to recover from the oil bust and the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. The metropolitan area created 23,200 jobs in June, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics which collects survey data from consumers and households each month.
