Governor Rick Scott

"Today’s announcement that Florida businesses have created nearly 13,000 private-sector jobs is great news for Florida families. Together since December 2010, Florida job creators have created 651,300 private-sector jobs. Florida’s unemployment rate has also dropped to 6.1 percent, the lowest it has been since June 2008.”

"The 12,800 new private-sector jobs, the 261,000 online jobs ads, and the decreasing unemployment rate are all indicators that Florida is continuing to grow its opportunity economy. Florida offers the perfect climate for families and business to plan for their future."
