More from the Economic Recovery

The state of Florida released the January unemployment numbers. They're pretty much unchanged from December. Interestingly, the state has added 8,400 jobs from January 2010 to January 2011.

That averages out to 700 jobs a month.

That for about 1,100,000 unemployed people in Florida, not to mention all the underemployed people. All this after 18 months (as of the time of January) of economic recovery. The state now forecasts that we will return to 6.0% unemployment in 2018.

Recovery my ass....
