Statement

Date:
Location: Columbia, SC

Governor Nikki Haley today released the following statement regarding South Carolina's unemployment figures released by the Department of Employment and Workforce (DEW):

"We are working every day to bring jobs to South Carolina, and today's news of another drop in the unemployment rate is welcome. But we still have much work to do. We won't stop until everyone in South Carolina who wants a job has a job."

According to DEW, the state's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell to 9.5 percent in December 2011, a 0.4 percentage point drop from November's 9.9 percent rate. This marks the fourth consecutive monthly rate drop and is the lowest rate since December 2008.
