The job market in the country has gotten much worse since the start of the recession.
The unemployment rate in the nation’s fastest-growing metropolitan area, Houston, has been hovering around 9 percent since early 2007.
But it has since risen to 10 percent, with nearly half of the population living in poverty.
That’s a pretty big jump from the unemployment rate of 5.3 percent when the recession began.
In fact, the Houston metro area has seen a surge in the number of jobs for young people.
The number of full-time jobs in the city hit a record high in April, as well as its job market, and that trend continued in the weeks following the election.
But the job market hasn’t been the same since then.
In January, the number in the Houston metropolitan area for jobs that require a bachelor’s degree, or those with at least some college education, dropped to just 15 percent.
And in February, that number jumped to 20 percent.
“People who are starting to graduate college and getting jobs, they’re not finding them in Houston,” said Steve Leavitt, president of the Houston-based Jobs for Young Professionals group.
Leavitz said that’s not because people are looking for new jobs, but because of an old problem: the job gap.
The national unemployment rate for people between the ages of 18 and 34 is 11.7 percent, and the jobless rate for those aged 35 to 54 is 6.6 percent.
The Houston-area jobless gap is even higher.
The city is still the second-highest jobless metro area for people aged 15 to 24 in the United States.
And for people who are 25 to 34, the unemployment gap is 7.5 percentage points, according to Leavit.
That means that for every job the Houston area has added in the past decade, more than 5,000 jobs have gone unfilled or gone to people who graduated from college.
In other words, more young people have left the Houston job market.
LeaVitt says he doesn’t think that will ever change.
“There are so many people that are not finding jobs,” Leavitsaid.
“If they can find jobs in a good, growing city, they will.”
The city of Houston is just one example of a city struggling with a growing job market that hasn’t had a lot of job growth since 2007.
But a large portion of the job growth in the area is due to immigrants.
More than a third of the city’s job growth is due the arrival of foreign-born workers in the years following the recession, according the National Association of Cities and Towns.
That figure has risen since 2014, when about a third (36 percent) of the jobs created were in those categories.
And there is no clear pattern to the growth of these immigrant jobs in Houston.
The numbers are different in many other cities, like San Antonio, where the unemployment percentage is about 4.4 percent, according TOHS data.
The jobs in San Antonio are mostly in health care and hospitality and the construction industry, according ToHS.
And while Houston’s job market has been better, it has also seen an increase in the percentage of new hires that come from other parts of the country.
The new jobs are also mostly from outside the United State.
“The fact that we have so many foreign- born workers in Houston is one of the reasons why we’re seeing an influx of jobs,” said Mark Bierman, executive director of the Greater Houston Partnership, a nonprofit organization that works to recruit and train local companies to hire locally.
The other part of the story, according Leavithit, is that there has been a lot more hiring in recent years, particularly for tech-related positions.
The hiring boom has created a new wave of job seekers, and they are often older workers.
They have more experience, and are looking to work for a company that will provide them with an education and pay a decent wage.
Leach said that even if a job is going to be an entry-level job, the recruiter needs to know that people who can fill it will be hired.
That’s something that isn’t the case for all tech jobs.
In Houston, many tech jobs are entry- or middle-level jobs.
Those are typically high-paying jobs, and require a high level of technical skills.
For example, in the construction sector, there are many tech positions where a college degree is required to be hired, but a high school diploma is not.
So Leavich said that a lot depends on where you work.
If you’re in the technology sector, a high-level engineer, a tech product manager or a developer could be considered entry- to-middle-level positions.
In Houston, there is also a new generation of job candidates.
They’re younger, and less likely to be from Texas
