LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Despite the slight rise in unemployment around Texas, the state still added 7,300 jobs last month.

For the month of November, in Lufkin, the employment rate rose from 4.2 to 5 in a years time. But the Texas Workforce Commission says there are still jobs out there. Hiring businesses include Lowe's, William George Produce, Polk Oil, and Family Auto Repair.

"Anything in the healthcare career field is a hot area for people, we have postings with those employers as well" says Sandra Hopson, the Business Services Specialist at TWC.
