SC Labor Participation Rate Inches Up

South Carolina’s labor participation rate inched up in April from a record low in March … climbing from 58.5 to 58.9 percent, according to the S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce (SCDEW).

That figure is still well below the rate, however, which inched up from a 34-year-low in April to its current level of 63.4 percent.

The labor participation rate is the percentage of the state’s (or country’s) working age population that is either employed or actively searching for a job. It’s a critical – and often-overlooked – data point in assessing true employment growth.

Labor participation in South Carolina under Gov. Nikki Haley peaked at 60.9 percent in June 2011 but had been falling precipitously since then. Officially, South Carolina’s unemployment rate stands at 8 percent – although the actual percentage is probably much higher given our low labor participation.

Why is FITS so Obviously ignoring the Roy Costner story?… FITS cannot wait to ridicule SC when some liberal chump manifests…Costner gives him a chance to Christian-bash…and it’s a NATIONAL story from this state. Hint:…Costner represents everything despicable about FITS, the liberals and the liberal-tarians…Costner is FITS worst enemy…

Also Since Clemson is sitting and watching, I see FITS has no appetite for college baseball. So if the un-Carolina wins…I wonder if FITS will be rubbing our faces in it…as is his custom w/ bad news for USC…

As for the above: Nobody cares about his non-story. As long as Obama is president, nothing American (spectacular) is going to happen…that’s apparent…

I checked this out. You should post a link T. Great Story. Personally I think its right up FITS alley. Buck the system. That’s the sites premise. While generally I think this is more of a political site, and this may not necessarily fall into politics by some people’s measure, I’d personally love to see it.
Why not submit the link to the tip line. See what happens. I think you might get an unexpected response. :)

Remember T “Jjjjuuuuussstt a spoon full of sugar…” :)

I posted the link a few days ago Frank. And:

1) Fighting for Free Speech for Christians in Obama’s America IS VERY political. The most important political issue facing us. Obama is coming for your freedoms, and he wants to use your personal info. to silence you if you disagree w/ him and the leftwing NAZIs…

2) FITS is all for EXTRA freedoms for Homosexuals (who define themselves by their sexual preference) Drug addicts, Muslims and atheists. But he has shown hostility and contempt for Christians. Like Obama, he’d love to keep stripping them of their rights because they adhere to Biblical morality, not hedonism and perversion.
FITS and Obama think they have the right to take rights from political enemies and Buzz-Killers for degenerates….

T, posting and submitting are two different things. I think Mr. Folks might at least mention the link in this Wire post if you submit it to him. I don’t know if Mr. Folks does this site alone or with others, but I’m quite sure he does not read every single post by the commenters. Put it right in front of his nose and say “Hey, what do you think about this?” or “Wow, can you believe this kid?? What balls!! Woohoo. Freedom of Speech at work!! This kid knows what the first amendment is all about. Wow and Wowzaa”

Be nice, don’t call him a fag lover and ask him if he’s seen it. You’ll be surprised at how much further a lump of sugar will take you to the distance a lump of coal will get, when a mans hungry.

Have a Great Day, T!! :)

Thanks for the advice, Frank. You likely mean well…
But I have no intention of telling FITS what to do. My effort is far more one to show what, and who, he is…
If he wants to market himself as he does, I’m glad to get out of the way and let him do it. But I will point out his tendencies…I love playing the critic…

I guess you are desperate to change the subject from the rapidly improving economy, Big T. Can only lie about that for so long before facts start getting in the way. By the way the “most accurate poll in the nation” Rasmussen, Says employment is now better that it has been since 2007. Slowly we are starting to repair all of the damage done by the republicans, under Bush.
