The number of people out of work is on the decline, but still not where things were two years ago.
The latest numbers from the Texas Workforce Commission show 5.9% of the workforce lookng for work in the College Station-Bryan Metro area with some 7,000 people looking for a job.

Those numbers put us at the fourth best unemploymente rate in the state.
