Manufacturing jobs on the rise in Texas

Following a 12.4% decline in manufacturing jobs from June 2006 to December 2009, Texas demonstrated the positive trend of adding manufacturing jobs in each of the first six months of 2010.  According to the U.S. Congress Joint Economic Committee’s report, “Promising Signs of Recovery in Manufacturing,” Texas added 22,800 jobs in the January-to-June period – a 2.8% increase from the beginning of the year. 

The San Antonio Express-News article Manufacturing jobs are on rise in Texas (, 8-4-10) reported that the San Antonio Manufacturers Association estimated an increase of 50 – 100 new manufacturing jobs gained in the first half of 2010.

The report listed Texas as one of five states that added manufacturing jobs in each of the first six months of 2010 and pointed out that Texas has the second-largest manufacturing work force in the nation after California.  The other states that recorded six consecutive months of manufacturing jobs gains were New Hampshire, Florida, Tennessee and Indiana.
