More people going to to work and school in the new year

The new year is now really getting underway. School is about to start and many workplaces are getting started in earnest. The Florida unemployment rate is less than 7 percent and this means many people are seeking new opportunities.

"I hope to get a promotion. I may go back to school and get more skills. I am hoping for good things in my career and personal life this year," said Mindy Holt.

"I am working in the construction trade and I think this year will be a lot better than previous years. I have a good job now and I hope to keep it and get lots of hours," said Daniel Baker.

"I am looking forward to going back to school in January. I want to get into the medical field," said Miriam Gonzalez.
