DEW Executive Director Cheryl Stanton’s Statement

February 2018 Employment Statement

“Recently, four people living in a homeless shelter in Myrtle Beach graduated from our Back to Work program. And since graduating all four found work. It is exciting to see people enter the labor force and find work so they can take care of themselves and their families,” said Cheryl Stanton, executive director of the S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce. “It is equally exciting to see businesses continuing to add jobs and hire our citizens, many of whom have barriers to employment. Our mission is to ensure all residents, including veterans, ex-offenders, the disabled and the homeless, have the opportunity to succeed in the state’s booming economy by preparing them for the jobs available across the state.”
