South Carolina – According to a report by the SC Department of Employment and Workforce, employment decreased significantly in from October in November.
The report says the amount of people employed dropped down to 2,223,349.
Meanwhile, the report says unemployment in the state increased to 102,186 people, going from 4.2 percent in October to 4.4 percent in November.
“There’s no doubt our nation and state continue to battle back from record high unemployment, but South Carolina’s unemployment rate is holding steady with a slight uptick from 4.2 percent in October to 4.4 percent in November. It will take grit and tenacity to rebound fully, not only from employers continuing to find innovative ways to make their workplaces safe, but also for job seekers who are being challenged now more than ever to rethink employment options and unique career opportunities,” said S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce Executive Director, Dan Ellzey.
