Florida is still adding private sector jobs, but at the slowest pace in seven months.
The state grew by a net 14,400 private sector jobs in November, according to a report Wednesday by payroll processor ADP.
That's the smallest increase since April and far off the pace during the height of the recovery, when the state was adding more than 20,000 jobs a month.
Florida is typically among the top three job creators in the country, and it remained third last month.
But the total was a big dropoff from No. 1 California and No. 2 Texas, which added 29,000 jobs and 26,300 jobs, respectively.
Florida wasn't too far ahead of New York, which added 11,700 jobs.
ADP, working with Moody's Analytics, bases its estimates on worker payroll data.
Unlike the monthly jobs reports from the U.S. Labor Department, it does not include government jobs added or lost.
The government report, which includes the state's unemployment rate, is scheduled to be released Dec. 16.
