Ihear you. Same here. It's too bad there are not incentives (are there?) for businesses/ manufacturers to come into the areas, create jobs, spur the economy.

I know, I wish there were!!! Oh, but if you are from another country, it's a different story. I have FRIENDS from other countries there who agree with my BTW.

Interesting that Delta Sky magazine has 27 pages dedicated to palm beach county to attract business's to come to the area as well as business travelers...I will say from personal experience here it really does depend on what one does for a living and with that the salaries arent horrible either again completely depends on what your occupation is...

Yes alot of medical/healthcare definitely a growing sector..Restaurant depends although the hot spots are very busy all the time..and the Snow Birds arent here yet..lol

Business/Consulting Management also there are jobs and they pay pretty well considering its South Florida...Again it depends on what one does.

There are no real good jobs coming to South Florida, High Tech from California will go elsewhere if it leaves more than likely Texas. Why move from one frying pan to another, with cost of living and cost of doing business being very high? Biotech is the only spinoff from California's industry that came here and that alone is very small compared to the population.

Unemployment in high, a lot of people have jobs in fields with nothing to fall back on, making good salaries but no idea how long it will last.
