If the number of claims flowing into the state unemployment system didn’t make it clear Floridians are struggling, a new poll from the University of South Florida and Nielsen does.

The survey, conducted last month, found more than two-thirds of Floridians are experiencing income loss or work disruption, be it a loss in hours (27%), a temporary furlough (18%), a pay cut (13%) or a layoff (12%).
