Amarillo Unemployment Rates Near Lowest In State

Amarillo is tied for second place when it comes to the lowest unemployment rates in the state of Texas.

Odessa, Lubbock and Amarillo all have unemployment rates of 3.5 %, which is lower than the state average of 4.4%.

The Texas Workforce Commission says continued job growth reflects the state's solid economic foundation.  Last month, over 23,000 jobs were added across the lone star state.

The Texas unemployment rate is lower than the national average.
