Austin Fashion Week plus June 2010 unemployment rate

Posted on Aug 9, 2010 in employment, shopping | No Comments

Attention Fashionistas: Austin Fashion week is almost here! Check out the schedule here. I will be heading to at least one event, the 2nd Street District Fashionably Fifth Birthday Fete, plus hopefully the afterparty if I can manage to stay up that late. I won’t be going to see Tiffany play on the first night.  My inner 9 year old self is screaming in agony about that one.

In unrelated news, I haven’t posted the current Austin unemployment rate in a very long time.  Austin is at 7.4%, Texas is at 8.5%, and the US is at 9.6%  (June 2010 figures). Interestingly, we are exactly where we were a year ago.  Source: Texas Workforce Commission.
