Florida job numbers are on the rise under Governor Rick Scott

Under Florida Governor, Rick Scott, the job market in Florida has vastly improved.

From healthcare and technology to construction, Senator Perry and State Representative Chuck Clemmons both credit the growth to low taxes and economic climate that the Governor helped create.

Here in North Central Florida, significant progress is being seen. Alachua and Bradford Counties unemployment rate dropped from 4 percent to 3.4 percent.

The most jobs in the Gainesville area that were added were mining, logging, and construction, with an 8 percent increase.
