According to a recent article in The Monitor, Cameron County shed 1,300 jobs and experienced the worst unemployment level of any county in Texas.
Texas Workforce Commission data (PDF) released Friday shows the Brownsville-Harlingen metro area, which covers Cameron County, edged out the McAllen-Edinburg-Mission metro area, which covers Hidalgo County, to claim the unfortunate title. McAllen-Edinburg-Mission’s unemployment rate was 11.9 percent, just one-tenth of one percent lower than Brownsville-Harlingen’s 12 percent unemployment rate.
