Texas Employers Unemployment Rate Headed Up

Hardly a surprise I suppose, but Tom Pauken, Chairman of the Texas Workforce Commission which handles unemployment claims in Texas, has confirmed that employers should be prepared for a substantial rise in their unemployment tax rate.

According to a story in today's Dallas Morning News:
Pauken said that though things could still change, it's probable that the commission next year will need to raise an amount from employers comparable to the amount raised in 2003 – or 2.4 percent of all taxable wages.
See, Employers' unemployment insurance taxes likely to rise, workforce commission chairman says.

No doubt employers in other states will be in a similar, unhappy, situation.
