Gov. Haley Cheers Drop in Unemployment

web posted March 18, 2014

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Governor Nikki Haley issued the following statement on Monday in response to South Carolina’s unemployment rate declining to 6.4 percent in January from 6.6 percent in December. The annual benchmarking report shows January to be the eighth consecutive month where the unemployment rate has decreased in South Carolina.

6.4 percent unemployment is the lowest since June 2008 and the second straight month that South Carolina’s rate has been under the national rate, which prior to last month, had not occurred since January 2001. In addition, over two million South Carolinians were employed in January, the highest level in the state’s history.

“Today’s news is a real testament to the hard working people of South Carolina and another sign that we are continuing to move in the right direction. With more South Carolinians working than ever before – we are consistently proving that our state has the skilled workforce and business environment that companies here and around the world need to grow and succeed.”
