Florida remains third-biggest generator of private sector jobs

Creation of private sector jobs in Florida picked up in June as the state persists as the third biggest job generator in the country, according to a report released Wednesday.

Florida added 22,620 private jobs, up from 17,280 jobs in May, according to national payroll processing company ADP, which uses payroll data to estimate private jobs added every month. Consistent with recent months, California and Texas were, by far, the top two job powerhouses with nearly 80,000 new jobs added between them.

"All four of the major regions had job gains well above their averages for the past twelve months," said Ahu Yildirmaz, VP and head of the ADP Research Institute "Despite showing their strongest growth since November 2013, the Northeast and Midwest are still well behind the South and West."

Unlike the monthly reports from the U.S. Labor Department, the ADP analysis does not include federal, state and local government jobs. The next report giving Florida's jobs and unemployment snapshot for June is due to be released July 18.
