Texas Jobs Increase, But Warnings Of A 'Crisis' Ahead


Texas A&M University-Commerce economics professor and interim dean of the College of Business, Dr. Dale Funderburk, reflects on news that Texas added more than 38,000 jobs in September, the biggest monthly gain since December 2014.  But that is offset by a second story in which a financial executive warns of a a looming crisis because he says we are not educating people for the changes in the workforce that technology is bringing.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
