U.S. Democratic Senate Candidate Kendrick Meek responded to today's announcement by the Florida Agency of Workforce Innovation that Florida's seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate rose to 11.9 percent in January.
"As the rest of the nation emerges from the economic downturn, Florida is being left behind. Floridians are hearing about recovery, but we're not seeing it. Floridians in every community I visit expect leadership from public servants and my focus is on creating new, long-term, sustainable jobs for Florida. Our economy will not fully prosper while politicians continue to preach ideology at the expense of pursuing sound public policy. Today's unemployment rate serves as a sobering reminder that our families and communities require hands on leaders who work hard for their interests and against the status quo who put the powerful first."
