Camden, SC – South Carolina’s unemployment rate remained at 8.1 percent this month, where it has been stuck for the past three months, despite declining national unemployment rates. Sen. Vincent Sheheen released this statement:
“Today’s unemployment report marks three months of no progress on jobs – South Carolina continues to have one of the highest unemployment rates in the country, all while middle-class families take a hit from falling income and struggle to keep their heads above water. The number one job of a governor is to provide opportunity and deliver results for businesses and families to thrive in a state. Small businesses are the drivers of economic growth and building a strong middle class is key to a strong future– but Nikki Haley keeps stacking the deck against them. We can do better. We must do better for the South Carolinians who are working hard, acting responsibly, and still struggling. It’s time for new leadership in South Carolina to build an economy from within and work across the aisle to deliver results.”
