Uncertain Future
Olga O'Dell, 62, of Moore Haven, was laid off from her office job at the Glades County landfill in September 2010. "I worked 17 years to get up to an average of $12 an hour." Office work, which she's done since she was 15, is scarce in rural Glades. Glades' unemployment rate in October was 7.9%, and Florida's was 10.3%.
