I consider El Paso almost a second a home to me, as I’ve worked and played in the area for more than two decades now. Principle industries and employers include Ft. Bliss (Federal) and the Border Patrol (Federal).

El Paso: 1 in 10 people in that area are directly employed by the Federal Government. In October, both Texas Senators voted against reopening the Federal Government.

In Austin, there’s a huge IRS complex, on the south side of town. While only a small percentage of Austin is thusly employed, I still have several clients that are “feds.”

Central Texas: 1 in 10 people in that area are directly employed by the Federal Government. In October, both Texas Senators voted against reopening the Federal Government.
