WEG Founder and Principal Interviewed by Sun-Sentinel on August Employment Report

Tony Villamil, WEG Founder and Principal, was interviewed by Ron Hurtibise for a September 19th article in Sun-Sentinel on Florida’s August Employment report.  Florida’s unemployment rate inched up in August to 6.3 percent, just 0.1 percentage point over July’s rate, but nearly a full point below the 7.1 percent rate in August 2013.
