In the six county inland south Florida region alone, of the 96,255 in the labor force, nearly 23 percent are prime working age.

The majority of the population has a high school degree. While 62 percent of the labor force is employed in white collar jobs (versus 37 percent blue collar) of those, more than 10,000 are employed or under-employed in retail. Career Source Heartland, for example, reports that the top growing positions in their service area are Food Prep/Servers, Retail Sales, Farmworkers, Cashiers and Customer Service Representatives and yet reports interviewing 21.1 candidates per one available job opening.
