SC Minority Leader: SCDEW An “Absolute Embarrassment”



Columbia, SC – House Democratic Leader Rep. Todd Rutherford responded to the news that General Abraham Turner will resign as the Director of the South Carolina Department of Employment and Workforce effective March 1st with the following statement:
“Governor Haley has allowed her agency, SC DEW, to become an absolute embarrassment. In the last two weeks the governor’s agency has made news because of crippling layoffs, massive pay raises, lavish taxpayer funded beach retreats, the closing of seventeen unemployment centers in rural counties, and now the resignation of the Executive Director. Governor Haley must regain control of her agency before it is too late. Millions of South Carolinians depend on this agency to be functional and effective. As it stands today, it is the opposite.”
