This isn't a selective a partial quote;<quoted text>
Didn't bother actually reading the articles you linked on texas I take it.
Both articles state:
"And although job growth in California has surged ahead recently, Texas has outpaced it in 18 of the past 24 months."
Also interesting if you do the math and take out the cuts Texas made to its public workforce of 36,000 then CA is really only ahead and increase of 2.6% compared to 2.4% in Texas.
You also need to consider CA started from a much lower point than TX.
Bottom line: CA has 10.7 percent unumployment, compared with Texass 7.2 percent.
You don't need to be a genious to figure out which state is doing a better job.
"The bottom line: California is beating Texas in job growth, though at 10.7 percent, its unemployment rate remains the third-highest in the U.S."
