Florida has boasted one of the nation’s fastest-growing job markets in recent years, but how good are those positions? Maybe not so good.

Fully 65 percent of Florida workers earn annual salaries less than $39,099, Florida International University’s Center for Labor Research & Studies reports.

Half of Florida workers make $28,236 or less. Only 20 percent of salary earners make $55,463 or more.

High-paying jobs are concentrated in management, health care and sales. White workers in Florida make significantly more than non-white workers, FIU says.
