Rick Perry brags about the wonderful job he's done of job creation in Texas, but the truth about the Texas "jobs miracle" is certainly nothing to brag about. I have posted before about how most of the jobs Perry brags about are minimum wage jobs with no benefits, but it gets even worse than that. When you subtract the growth of the labor force in the state from the number of new jobs you find that there are now more than 300,000 people out of work in Texas than before the jobs were created. In other words, Texas has lost ground on the jobs front (and lost more ground than any other state).
