“New numbers released today show that the state’s unemployment rate in January was 6.1 percent. That’s the lowest the rate has been since June 2008. There are an estimated 581,000 Floridians out of work.” [Source: AP]
Why is Florida’s unemployment rate so low? Lots of jobs? people quit looking? something in between? Bottom line – we should be asking questions since if Florida’s number is so low due to lots and lots of jobs, we need their strategy nationwide.
