Recently, Edinburg has experienced the lowest unemployment rates the city has seen in over a decade. Just last month, the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) released its April 2019 Labor Market and Employment report which showed that Edinburg hit a historically low unemployment rate of 3.7%. The previous lowest unemployment rate recorded for Edinburg was 4.0% in 2008.

“This decrease in our unemployment rate is directly attributed to our growth in business development,” stated Jorge Luis Salinas, City Commissioner and Edinburg EDC Board President. “We are proud to have so many new businesses opening shop in the City of Edinburg and as such, we want to ensure that they are looking at our citizens for their workforce needs,” he stated. “We have been holding job fairs every few months and are proud to work with all our local partners to host the largest job fair yet,” Salinas added.

There is no pre-registration required. All interested applicants need only show up and sign in to participate. For more information or to register, please contact the Edinburg EDC at (956) 383-7124 or email michael@edinburgedc.com. See attached flyer.
