More jobs are coming to Florida. Governor Rick Scott announced that Florida companies created 32,000 private sector jobs in February 2014; the highest number of private sector jobs created in a month since Scott took place. The Florida unemployment rate for February 2014 was 6.2 percent, according to a March 28 release from the Office of Governor Rick Scott.

In the release, Governor Rick Scott was quoted as saying, “It is clear that businesses are growing and creating more jobs and opportunities for Floridians. We are moving Florida’s opportunity economy forward and the addition of more than 32,000 private sector jobs in just last month is great news for Florida families,” said Scott.

“I hope the job situation continues to improve. A lot of people were out of work and now they are getting jobs. I am glad things are starting to get better,” said Cindy Folks.
