Crist Talks About Florida’s Unemployment Rise

December 19th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Governor Charlie Crist is counting on both Federal and state economic stimulus packages to help boost job gains. Crist is also going to ask state lawmakers to make loans available to small businesses in hopes of creating jobs.  Some 2 hundred thousand jobs are being advertised on the state website. The governor says the web site is a good place to start looking for work.

“EmployFlorida.com is a great website to go to. I understand not everybody has a computer, but you can go to the unemployment offices around the state, through Workforce Florida, and utilize those computer,” Crist said. “There are opportunities out there and we’re going to continue to fight for the people as much as we can, and encourage them and try to bring about more hope.”

An estimated 680 thousand Floridians are out of work. 59 thousand lost their jobs in November alone.
