Default Tough Job market

Hi Mike,
Florida is a tough job market at best. What type of work do you do? There are lots of over qualified people competing for jobs in Florida. I am in the HVAC industry and many skilled laborers have left Florida over the last few years because they can make more doing the same thing some place else. Housing here is not cheap and skilled labor positions dont pay all that well, if you are not skilled in a trade or in the proffesional job field things will be tough for you. Good luck to you, I would suggest getting a degree so you are not forced into manual labor in our Florida heat
