November 2017 Employment Statement

“It is exciting to see that businesses have added nearly 8,000 workers in this last month, providing opportunities for South Carolinians. Each time a company decides to expand or build a facility in South Carolina, they are giving the state a vote of confidence that we have a skilled workforce available to fill their positions,” said Cheryl Stanton, executive director of the S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce. “We are working to help ensure that all citizens – whether a disabled veteran, the homeless or an ex-offender – can take advantage of these opportunities by removing any barriers to employment.”
