Flagler County, where Palm Coast is located, has the highest unemployment rate in Florida. 1 in 8 workers there is without a job.
Our Dispatches from the Swing State project passed through Palm Coast yesterday and stopped at a hotdog stand where they met John Sabia.
Sabia works only for tips at Hot Diggity Dog. He’s helping out the owner who happens to be his son.
Sabia says when Palm Coast was booming, the hotdog stand had a line for hours and US1 was backed up with traffic.
But then, the collapse.
