Have they established a mandatory 6-month residency before one can
claim state benefits/compensation? I seem to have heard this somewhere.....

Texas doesn't have benefits. You get what you earn.

Huh? That's a new one on me for many of the state's people.

I think I heard something that Texas is a "right to work" state, but I am not sure what that means and if that entails anything about benefits

"Right to work" refers to laws prohibiting the mandating of union membership (and the attendant dues) as a condition of employment. In places like Illinois, there are a whole host of jobs you cannot have without joining a certain union and relinquishing a portion of your wages for the privilege.

right to work means employer has right to fire at will--for no reason/explanation

you gain the benefits of living in TX from the instant you cross the line into our wonderful state--of course most of these are not provided by the state government as you seem to think...but the natural environment, the historical background, the cultural enrichment...

I guess those folks in the OP's photo haven't figured that out yet. Or, they're just waiting for the movie.

Actaully it means both;you do not have to join a union and the employer does not have to give a reason to terminate you.

To The OP, Please clarify your post. Most of us are getting the impression that your either 1 of 3 things

1. Someone taking pictures at the unemployment offices, wondering how in the heck could all these people be applying for unemployment when they look like they just entered Texas.

2. You just entered Texas, and your ready for some free shyt.

3. Your a hardworking American citizen that lost a job that you worked for less than 6 months and are possibly thinking about relocating to Texas, but wondering can you get some kind of assistance immediately or if you have to wait a few months.

Which one are you, and if your neither please tell us more details of your situation, and what your asking.

Texas doesn't pay squat. Go to New Mexico for great benefits.
