Scott, Who Enriched Himself as Governor, Bragged About Florida’s Low Wages


As a reminder of Rick Scott’s true jobs record, Florida Democratic Party spokesman Sebastian Kitchen released the following statement after his latest campaign stop Belle Glade Tuesday morning:


“Rick Scott is an out-of-touch self-serving politician who, while managing to make himself $46 million wealthier while in office, bragged about Florida paying its workers among the lowest wages in the nation. Thanks to his self-serving politics, half of Florida counties have lost jobs. Rick Scott is looking out for himself – not hard-working Floridians and their families.”
