March 2017 Employment Statement

“The fact that nearly everyone entering the labor force in March found work is truly a testament to how robust the economy is in South Carolina. Businesses are deciding South Carolina is where they want to grow and expand and, therefore, are in need of our number one resource – our people. And in turn, more and more people are feeling confident and optimistic about the opportunities available to them as they return to the workforce,” said Cheryl Stanton, executive director of the S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce.
