Secretary Joe Taylor: Our state's economy is strong

Secretary Taylor recently pointed out that:

Last year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, South Carolina had the 7th-fastest growing labor force in the nation, indicating more and more people are choosing South Carolina as the place for their families to live and work.

Over the past three months, South Carolina has stepped up to the 6th-fastest employment growth rate in the nation, gaining more than 28,000 jobs since December alone. Just to put that in perspective, that's more jobs than nearly two dozen states produced for all of 2006.
