Kendrick Meek's Statement on Today's Unemployment Rate Announcement

Miami Gardens, Fla. - 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 12.2 percent in February.

"Floridians don't need monthly unemployment figures to know that our state is hurting. Compared to other states, we are leaders in unemployment and laggards in deploying critical Recovery Act dollars meant for our communities. Other states are beginning their economic recovery, but Florida is lagging behind. The status quo is not working for Floridians and I am working to bring new, long term jobs to Florida," said Kendrick Meek, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate.
