This opportunity for jobs comes at a time when the unemployment rate for Tampa, St. Pete and Clearwater is at the lowest it's been in months.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate in the area was 4.5 percent in August 2021. June was 5.2 percent and July was 4.7 percent.

As of now, the percentage for the month of September has not been added.

With seasonal jobs coming back, this percentage has the possibility of lowering while the employment rate rises.
