Florida's unemployment rate for February was released today, and it is not good: 9.4 percent! That's up from 8.1 percent in January, and getting dangerously close to one in ten Floridians being jobless. Miami-Dade has an unemployment rate of only 7.5 percent. That would have sounded totally depressing last year, but given the context, it's something of a bright spot.
