The Houston area unemployment rate dipped slightly to 5.4 percent in August, down from 5.5 percent the previous month, the Texas Workforce Commission reported Friday. The rate usually moves down each August as school bus drivers, school cafeteria workers and students leave the summer job market and either return to their regular jobs and students go back to school.
