So there's good news all over the place here. First, after two months of negative manufacturing job growth in Florida, we saw a surge with one of the top three months for manufacturing job growth within the past decade. Florida exhibited across the board strength and breadth of job gains as we added a total of 27,200 private sector jobs for the month. With 263,000 private sector jobs being added nationally in the ADP Report (which stands in conflict with the BLS number for March), Florida accounted for 10.3% of the job growth nationally and we have just 6.3% of the population. In other words, Florida's job growth outperformed the national average by 63%. Yay us!
