Government REALLY doesn't create jobs in Florida

From WGCU's Ashley Lopez:

The state's population has grown by 4 million since 1998. Its budget has increased by $25 million since 2000. Yet Florida has almost 10,000 fewer established positions in the State's Personnel System, State University System, State Legislature, Courts System and Justice Administration combined, than it did 15 years ago.

This means Florida's government has been operating at its lowest staffing levels in almost two decades.
