We have a thread going "A list of the positive things in Florida's future". I think your post would fit in well there if you feel like posting it again in another thread.

Just a suggestion, thanks.

This is a joke right? High tech when many banks don't even have ATMs and many banks aren't even open on Saturdays....
I don't believe ANY of those statements are true.
If jobs are opening it will be because of people LEAVING. Florida high tech, Florida high tech....the more I say it the more I still do not believe it.
Companies here are down sizing....big time.
FYI high tech family here, and new openings soon when we go and why can't my comcast installer who has a CCNA get a job after a year and a half.
I can list a dozen states that have more and better high tech - like Massachusetts, New York and Texas.
Anyone coming from one of those states can tell you that it is like being dropped into the 80s here in Florida how backward and so behind everything is. LMAO

Take Florida's job growth. Between 1993 and 1998, Florida added 40,100 high-tech jobs to reach nearly 210,000, according to the report. The growth was sufficient to keep it the nation's sixth-largest high-tech employer.

But percentagewise, Florida's growth rate ranked 28th. For example, high-tech jobs in neighboring Georgia grew twice as fast during that period, 48 percent versus 24 percent.

As for wages, the average high-tech worker earned about $46,100 in 1998 in Florida, placing it 29th among states. That's about $21,000 less than the average worker earned in California. The report included manufacturers, communications firms, and software and computer-related companies in its definition of "high tech." Biotech companies and certain other industry sectors were excluded.

HERE IS AN EXPLANATION OF HOW PEOPLE CAN MISUNDERSTAND STATEMENTS, ALTHOUGH FLORIDA MAY HAVE A LOT OF JOBS IN SOME TECH FIELD, HELLO THEY ARE HUGELY POPULATED THAN SAY RHODE ISLAND SO THERE WOULD BE MORE JOBS, NOT NECESSARILY ENOUGH TO SUPPORT ALL THE TECH JOBSEEKERS

Those banks are pieces of $hit located in mostly retirement areas (CAPE CORAL!?!??!?!?). What the hell do you expect? Can't think of a single bank by me that isn't opened on the weekend. Thats besides the point that Bank Atlantic is as convenient as you are going to find anywhere. Go try it!

Why did you pick Tampa for location? Sounds like you didn't do your research.

It's not what I expect it's what's fact.....people who think they are smart....when they actually incompetant and lazy....how funny I am moving to Texas(Gulf Coast) because I love the weather but hate the morons here. By time you all figure it out, it will be too late. Huge loss of jobs, people who are morally bankrupt, huge rate of foreclosures and on and on. I now know why people who relocate here leave shortly thereafter.
