Houston Leading Nation In Job Growth
Houston, you're still kicking ass when it comes to jobs. At least relatively.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics came out with its September report on job growth in the nation's 12 largest metropolitan areas, and Houston leads the way.
Employment rose 2.2 percent here, as compared to decond-place Dallas-Fort Worth's 1.8 percent. Only Washington, Boston and New York also posted gains.
The news wasn't that great, though.

The BLS noted that "the rate of gain has slowed noticeably in Houston during the last year."
Where you don't want to be these days, in terms of job growth: Detroit and Atlanta. But mostly Detroit.
