2021 State of Working Florida Report

The State of Working Florida Report

The 18th edition of the State of Working Florida focuses on the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on the Florida economy and explains why some Floridians continue to face economic adversity while others have recovered from the pandemic recession. Data show that the state’s undergoing economic recovery from the March 2020 shock of the pandemic has been uneven as historical economic vulnerabilities across demographic groups, regions, and industries have been exacerbated and inequities deepened. This report calls for policymakers to center equity in Florida’s pandemic response and recovery and close gaps present in both public health and economic assistance delivery.
