This was the headline for the article from todays Austin American Statesman – sounds good right? It then goes on to read that 23,700 jobs were created in Austin in 2013 – still sounds good, right? Later on we find that this rate is “only” a 2.8% increase in job creation since 2009 (and that should give us something to complain about?). I don’t think so! Austin has seen it’s lowest unemployment rate in 5 years – 4.5%, and that is an envious figure by any standard!
