Prosperity is blooming in the Sunshine State.
First, the state ended the unemployment bonus last May, months ahead of schedule. Shortly after, unemployment costs in the state dropped 86%, and employers hired 1.3 million new workers. Since then, the state has regained 92.1% of the jobs it initially lost in the early days of the pandemic. The Sunshine State isn’t just for retirees and snowbirds — businesses and families are flocking there by the thousands.
