Unemployment Drops In The RGV

Local News

The Fourth Annual RGV Job Fair is serving as proof that unemployment rates continue to drop in the Valley.

The latest statistics from the Texas Workforce Commission show the upper valley unemployment rate at 6.2 percent and the lower valley right now sitting at 6 percent. While those rates are higher than the state rate of 3.7 percent, Workforce Solutions says they expect unemployment to keep dropping.

Mike Gonzalez, Texas Workforce Solutions says, “Obviously we helped a lot of people out. We’re hoping to do the same this year, so that we can create some opportunities that we can share within our   community to help everyone flourish.”

If you missed this morning’s job fair, the McAllen Public Library will be holding its semi-annual job fair on Saturday, August 25 at 10:00 a.m.
