According to new numbers, Florida’s job market is experiencing a historic recovery. Much better than the national average.
Ever since Joe Biden took office, The United States economy is severalty underperforming because of the Biden administration’s woke policies. Extremely contrast to the Trump economy which was breaking new records every month.
The national economy gained 194,000 jobs last month, missing “experts” expectations by a large number. However, the state of Florida alone gained over 84,500 jobs in the same time leading the nation in terms of the largest percentage increase.
Florida’s Republican Governor Ron Desantis released a statement saying
“Florida’s economy accelerated in September 2021, growing at three times the rate over the month compared to the nation. Overall for the month, Florida gained 84,500 total jobs, including nearly 73,000 private-sector jobs. This month marks 17 months of private-sector job growth, increasing by 5.6% over the year. Florida has experienced this magnitude of monthly private sector job growth on only four other occasions in the past 30 years. In addition, Florida has experienced 11 consecutive months of labor force increases, adding 50,000 workers over the month. Florida’s labor force growth represents a 5.4% increase over-the-year, which is significantly higher than the national rate of 0.8%. In total, Florida has gained more than one million jobs since April 2020.”
“We are outpacing the nation in job growth and job opportunities because businesses know that Florida will stand up for them,” said DeSantis in the release. “Despite tremendous national headwinds and economic uncertainty, Florida has reached a level of job growth only seen on four other occasions in the past 30 years. We will continue to work hard to keep Florida open, free and built for opportunity.” He added.
Governor Desantis was the very first governor to turn down the “enhanced federal unemployment checks” that Joe Biden handed out from his $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan. Many critics were outraged by the governor’s decision to refuse free handouts and predicted it would have “negative consequences on the economy”
“From late May — when Gov. DeSantis announced he was ending the $300 weekly unemployment bonus — through late August, Florida employers hired nearly 1.3 million new workers. Nearly 400,000 of these new hires were recorded in the first three weeks following the unemployment bonus’s elimination. As the bonus ended, employers’ hiring rates spiked, allowing them to fill needed open jobs. For the first time in months, the number of unfilled positions in Florida began to decline in August, as more Floridians left unemployment and returned to work.” the new report states
Governor Desantis is also one of the few governors who awarded the state’s first responders like law enforcement, EMT, Fire Fighters, and with bonus checks. In contrast to other states who are always looking to defund their law-enforcement institutions.
Recently, Gov. Desantis invited police officers from across the country who are not getting fair treatment to fill in open spots in the state’s requirements.
He is also protesting Biden’s vaccine mandates in the state protecting his constituents’ rights.
