(TheConservativeNews.org) – Florida is often the source of weird, crazy or strange news, but that’s not all it’s known for. The Sunshine State is a vacation destination that offers a long list of fun activities. Apparently, there are plenty of jobs too.
According to a study WalletHub conducted, Florida is leading the nation in employment, bouncing back from the pandemic. The figures show a 91.5% difference in the number of unemployment cases residents have filed.
Florida may have the best unemployment rate in the nation, but it also ranks poorly in terms of the number of COVID cases, coming in 2nd highest across the country. It reported 37,299 cases of COVID-19 and 1,554 deaths in the past week. The only state doing worse than Florida in terms of the pandemic is California, which is still seeing significant amounts of unemployment claims.
This revelation comes as Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL), is criticized for his handling of the pandemic, by Democrats and the Biden administration. Yet, his state seems to be recovering much better than Democratic-led areas such as California, Michigan and the District of Columbia.
