In this week’s Economic Report, Dr. Rick Harper discusses the surprisingly strong monthly jobs report and the future of parking in downtown Pensacola.
The Department of Labor’s monthly jobs report smashed estimates for July, with Florida near the top of the U.S. in growth.
“It was a great first Friday jobs report,” Harper said. “We came in at 255,000. The consensus among analysts had been for about 180,000 job growth.”
