Time Warner Cable is investing $24 million and adding nearly 650 new jobs at its West Columbia, S.C. location, the S.C. Department of Commerce announced this week.

“Even in a recovering economy, Time Warner Cable continues to grow and is pleased to offer valuable, good paying jobs in Columbia,” a company executive said. “The addition of 644 jobs, which increases our South Carolina workforce by more than 50 percent, emphasizes our strong commitment to South Carolina.”

The news is the Palmetto State’s first big jobs announcement of 2013 – although Commerce’s official release declined to disclose whether taxpayer-funded incentives were used to lure the new positions.  Nonetheless, a scandal-weary S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley welcomed the news …

“We celebrate the company’s decision to expand with a $24 million investment and 644 new jobs in West Columbia,” Haley said. “While we work to bring new companies to South Carolina, it speaks to the strength of our state’s business-friendly climate when existing businesses like Time Warner Cable succeed and grow.”

Time Warner says the new jobs will be filled within the year. Anyone interested in applying for one of the new positions should visit the company’s careers website at

Yes, but they only hire people that don’t speak good English and are always 6-8 hours late for everything.

They have been closing out there large operation in Charlotte for the last year and have moved some to Raleigh and it now appears they can get a better deal here. Great news.

Resistance to Obama is paying off…Companies seeing us fight for the right to Voter ID are coming here because they know we love Freedom……

Thank you Gov. Hlaey for Kicking Sanford’s Failed, do-nothing policies in the @$$, and bringing us jobs…

Good to have an On-The-Job Governor after 8 years of Sanford, a Philanderer-in-Chief…

Yeah, they are coming here because of voter ID. Brilliant argument.

They are coming here because we are less educated and will tolerate lower pay. That is all. And Nookie Haley had nothing to do with this, though she will take all the credit. And she will remind us daily of the First Loser overseas fighting for our freedom.

“Let’s spend $24 million just because SC has a voter ID law!” said no one ever.

Is someone collecting these for inclusion in the world’s dumbest comments book?

Kim Jung Numba Un January 4, 2013 at 12:32 pm

Nikki Haley claiming credit for doing nothing in 3, 2, 1….

Smirks January 4, 2013 at 12:39 pm

Would be more tangible than the 4,000 Walmart jobs we have yet to receive.

BigT January 4, 2013 at 12:46 pm

States Rights before Obama you F%^&in idiots…It brings investment…

Ever hear of Boeing???…FITS and Obama hates Boeing…We (and Haley) LOVE the Jobs and the success…

It’s why we’re doing better than the FILTHY Rust Belt…(plus we got rid of The Lair, Sanford)….

Tom January 4, 2013 at 1:00 pm

In November Forbes Magazine produced a list of 11 states they refer to as Death Spiral States. Guess who is on that list.

Smirks January 4, 2013 at 1:05 pm

Psst! We had to bribe Boeing to come here with millions upon millions of dollars in incentives.

Oh, and don’t thank Haley for that one, thank Sanford. ;)

BigT January 4, 2013 at 1:18 pm

Hey you F^&*in Leftwing idots…look at SC’s unemployment rate…

It’s going down just like you on Obama…while the democrat states Choke on the Shaft that Dumb@$$ fed you all..

That said: GTFO of SC if you don’t like it….All you do is take money I make…All the democrat districts are where the Stupid live…and you eat up all the freebies…and have illigits and don’t take care of them….

Greenville, Lexington vote GOP, and have better schools and more jobs…It pays to be Conservative…and Sucks to be YOU….

We HATED Obama and voted that way…and jobs are coming as a reward…So SUCK IT…

The unemployment rate is going down because we’re creating more state and federal jobs and giving a shit ton of money to corporations to come here. Basically think of it as you’re this huge railroad tycoon. You’re like oh shit I see all these people without work, let’s build a railroad. You build the railroad and a shit ton of people die in the process, a train kills 200 people and you’re faced with a giant lawsuit you can’t afford because you built a faulty railroad track. Also, the railroads finished and those people don’t have a job again.

Maybe TWC will have someone answer the phone and speak English. There is bound to be one person in the six hundred.

ConcernedinSC January 4, 2013 at 9:48 pm

Most people in Lexington County speak English – It may be southern english but it is English. At least these jobs are in Lexington County not India. If you listened to the press conference these jobs are Call Service Center jobs with salaries in the $40,000 range. I would be happy they are bringing jobs to SC and not somewhere else but some people are just never happy. No incentives were given to bring these jobs nor put the $24 Million investment into the project. Count your blessings Lexington County!

norman January 4, 2013 at 3:56 pm

I reently had problems with them and everyone I talked with was well spoken and most helpful. It ended up they had given me POS equipment.

BigGovernment January 4, 2013 at 6:25 pm

I was at the press conference and they stated that no incentives were provided to TWC. Apparently successful, established businesses do not qualify for incentives.

Tolerating lower pay is necessary to compete. When you have nothing to distinguish yourself, then you must work for less.
