South Carolina Breaks All-Time Employment Record

Posted: Updated:

(NEWS RELEASE)- The South Carolina Department of Employment and Workforce, or DEW, says  newly-released figures show that 2013 was a banner year as far as total employment.  The department says More South Carolinians were employed by the end of the year than ever before in the state's history.

Statistics provided by DEW show that South Carolina's employment level exceeded the two-million mark in November 2012 and remained above the two-million level throughout 2013. Prior to this, the last time employment exceeded two-million was in July of 2008.

"Having more South Carolinians employed than at any other time in our state's history didn't happen by chance – it's the direct result of Team South Carolina's strategic effort to recruit and expand businesses in every corner of our state," said Governor Nikki Haley.

The employment situation for January will be released March 17th, and February's figures will be released on March 28th.
