Houston, America's #1 Job creator...


As a long time Houstonian, a consultant, and business owner, I was thrilled to run across this article in The Atlintic today. For a small business and technology consultancy like Envision Design, this is music to our ears.

Here is a snippet from the article. 

Texas is killing it.

It dominated the recession, crushed the recovery, and in a new analysis of jobs recovered since the downturn, its largest city stands apart as the most powerful job engine in the country — by far.

The ten largest metros have recovered 98 percent of the jobs lost during the recession, on average. But Houston, the first major city to regain all the jobs lost in the downturn, has now added more than two jobs for every one it lost after the crash. That’s incredible.
