restaurants, gambling establishments and amusement parks, and they make up about 10 percent of the region's economy. BOOMING BROWARD While the hospitality and leisure industry is bigger in Miami-Dade, growth over the past year in Broward was much faster than in Miami-Dade County: 2,900 jobs added, or 3.7 percent, compared to 2,700 jobs in Miami, or 2.7 percent. The report did not break out job growth in Monroe County. Broward's employment agency, Workforce One, is seeing most of its leisure and hospitality job postings in restaurant and food service work -- rather than hotel accommodations -- which includes companies like Arby's and Dunkin' Donuts needing dozens of workers spokeswoman, Kelly Allen said. Restaurateur Mario Padrino is feeling it. He owns Padrino's Cuban Cuisine, with locations in Hallandale Beach, Plantation and Boca Raton. The company hopes to open another restaurant in Oakland Park within a few weeks, but the timing will depend on how long it takes to hire workers. ''Recently, what's happening, competition for employees is greater,'' he said, adding that even though turnover hasn't been a problem at his existing restaurants, he's expecting a challenge staffing the new restaurant. For example, he's looking for dishwashers, servers and cooks, who generally make between $8 and $12 an hour. ''I think folks are more than usual jumping from one place to another because they're getting higher wages at another place. That was never an issue,'' he said.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
