    There are plenty of welding jobs in Texas because it is one of the fastest growing states in the country.

Texas also continues to grow as a center for jobs making it an even more attractive location for new residents. Plus the state does not have income tax resulting in an even lower cost of living.

The increase of new residents and businesses has also led to a high demand for welders as the construction industry expands.
