Jobs in Waco, Texas, United States

Waco is a city located in the US state of Texas. The city is the county seat of McLennan County.

It lies on the Brazos River and is connected to I-35, and lies almost exactly halfway between Dallas and Austin.

The city has a population of around 132,000 making it the 25th most populous city in the state.

Stalled City

Waco has perfect placement between the twin economic powerhouses of Austin and Dallas, and should be a more prosperous and successful city than it currently is.

The city is blessed with a number of natural parks and municipal open spaces, a good local education system and higher education facilities. It has more cultural attractions than a city of its size should have – including a museum devoted to Dr Pepper, which was invented in the city.

However, the city has a long and bloody history of racism, social conservatism and segregation, and deep seated resistance to meaningful change has not promoted an atmosphere attractive to an intelligent and diverse community.

The infrastructure is there and the town is slowly changing but for the moment, many people will not receive the kind of Texas welcome offered in more culturally diverse cities.
