Florida’s unemployment rate has dropped slightly from February’s 9.4-percent to 9-percent in March. As Sascha Cordner reports, the new head of the state’s job creation efforts says the decline is proof that the Governor’s efforts are working.
March’s jobless rate was at nine percent. That’s the lowest it’s been since January 2009. Newly appointed Department of Economic Opportunity executive director Hunting Deutsch says thanks to Governor Rick Scott, there’s been tremendous progress in job creation and unemployment reduction.
