HOUSTON - Houston has gained 57,000 new jobs over the last 12 months, including 4,300 new jobs in June, the Texas Workforce Commission reported.

Although Houston has lost jobs in the manufacturing sector, the overall unemployment rate is low. The unemployment rate stood at 4.3 percent in June, an improvement from 5.3 percent a year earlier.

Houston gained over 100,000 new jobs in 2014, one of the strongest areas in the nation for job growth. However, a huge drop in oil prices darkened the outlook for the Houston economy.

Economic forecasters say Houston will still gain jobs in 2015, but it will be fewer than the boom of last year.
