Florida jobs grew by more than 68,000 in July and the unemployment rate ticked up by .1 percent. That’s according to the latest report from the state Department of Economic Opportunity.

Economic analyst Dr. Hank Fishkind says that’s pretty good, all things considered...but as he tells WMFE’s Nicole Darden Creston, it’s the immediate future that looks a little hazy.

Nicole came to Central Florida to attend Rollins College and started working for Orlando’s ABC News Radio affiliate shortly after graduation. She joined Central Florida Public Media in 2010. As a field reporter, news anchor and radio show host in the City Beautiful, she has covered everything from local arts to national elections, from extraordinary hurricanes to historic space flights, from the people and procedures of Florida’s justice system to the changing face of the state’s economy.
