Today, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released their final state employment and unemployment report before November 3rd, revealing that in September, there were 450,000 more unemployed Floridians compared to 2019.
It also showed a slow recovery, with statewide job growth from August to September amounting to just half a percent. In response, Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo released the following statement:
“This report shows us what so many Floridians already know: Donald Trump’s ‘V-shaped’ recovery is a figment of his imagination. Unlike Trump, who has thrown up his hands in defeat after failing to manage the pandemic, Joe Biden has a plan to beat back coronavirus, provide relief to jobless Floridians, and rebuild this economy.”
