Governor Rick Scott went to work Friday at the Port of Miami for one of his "Let's Get to Work Days." The governor went to work at the Seaboard Marine, an ocean transportation company, to check heavy construction equipment waiting to be loaded onto a cargo vessel.
Scott, a Republican, borrowed the "workdays" idea from former Gov. and U.S. Sen. Bill Graham. The Democrat performed hundreds of "workdays" during his eight years as governor and 18 as a senator.
Scott has been making stops across the state to work jobs with regular Floridians. This is the governor's fifth "work day." Last month, he waited tables and washed dishes at a Panama City Beach seafood restaurant.
