WEDU’s Florida This Week discusses Florida governors past and present, and job growth led by low wage service work

Share

We listen to audio from Florida This Week, a political talk show moderated by Radioactivity host Rob Lorei, that aired this pass Friday on local PBS station WEDU. Topics discussed include Jeb Bush’s recent trip to Tallahassee and his record as Florida’s Governor, Rick Scott’s struggling approval ratings, a looming 1.3 billion shortfall in federal health care money for Florida, and the state’s job growth that is comprised mostly of low-wage, service sector jobs. We then open up the phone lines for listener thoughts and opinions.
Watch Friday’s episode here.
