Report: Florida job growth slows slightly in August

Florida job growth cooled slightly in August as it added 15,200 private sector jobs, according to the monthly ADP Regional Employment Report released Thursday.

Florida's two chief rivals among top job-creating states — California and Texas — both outperformed the Sunshine State, adding 27,800 jobs and 21,400 jobs, respectively.

Payroll processor ADP, working with Moody's Analytics, bases its estimates on worker payroll data. Unlike the monthly jobs reports from the U.S. Labor Department, it does not include government jobs added or lost.

The government report, which includes the state's unemployment rate, is coming out Sept. 16.
