Since the Great Recession, Florida’s labor market has combined the best and worst features of the post-industrial economy. Florida is a job-creating machine that’s routinely at the front of the pack in job growth. Pay, though, remains below the national average.

Now a WalletHub study ranks Florida 10th among all states for job seekers. WalletHub looked at such factors as unemployment rate, job growth, pay and commute times.

While Florida posted respectable showings in most categories in the WalletHub study, it came in at a lowly 48th in job satisfaction.

Washington state and Colorado ranked first and second in the study, no surprise given their repuations for creating high-wage, high-tech jobs.
