New unemployment numbers are set to be released Friday.
The state of Florida will be releasing the unemployment numbers for the month of December Friday morning and it could give a boost to Governor Rick Scott while also posing a tricky political situation.
Florida continued to add jobs in the month of September, though it’s not known how many of those jobs are part-time, full-time, or provide benefits.
The state of Florida saw a fourth straight month of stagnant job growth in the month of August with the unemployment rate ticking down from 7.1 percent to 7.0 percent.
Florida added more jobs in the month of June, according to payroll provider ADP. But, the question remains over what kind of jobs are being added and are they full-time, part-time, with benefits, without benefits, etc.
As the job market continues to struggle nationwide, those looking for work in Florida got some good news in May.
While the unemployment rate has slowly been ticking downward across the country and in the Sunshine State, the number of new jobs being added to the economy continues to dwindle.
