The Bureau of Labor Statistics just released employment numbers that tracked year-over-year job growth in cities and states across the country between August 2018 and August 2019. In that time, DFW added an average of 9,650 jobs per month! That's far and away more than any other city in Texas. In fact, about 2 out of every 5 jobs created in Texas were in DFW.
The 115,800 new jobs in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro were second in the country, only behind New York. So, it's not hard to understand why rush hour is getting more packed.
