For the second month in a row, the Texas unemployment rate reached a new low since 1976, the earliest year data is available online from the Bureau for Labor Statistics.

From Texas Standard:

The middle class is making gains, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. The latest numbers show the median household income for a family of four is now $59,030, the highest median income on record, topping the previous high set during the dot-com days of the late 1990s.

From Texas Standard:

For much of America’s history, the middle class has been a useful paradigm for understanding what is meant by "the American dream." But across the country, definitions of the middle class are changing, and income data recently released by the U.S. Census Bureau prompts questions about the differing experiences of who identifies as part of the middle class.
