Thousands of laid off workers are shut out of Florida’s meager unemployment system

The layoffs, meanwhile, keep coming. Among the latest: Brightline, South Florida’s high-speed rail service, announced it is suspending operations and plans to lay off 250 people. The venerable Eden Roc hotel in Miami Beach told the state that it would lay off 257. BLT Prime Doral, the signature restaurant at the Trump National Doral, is laying off 98. And in Boca Raton, the Waterstone Resort and Marina is saying goodbye to 111 employees.
