Those jobs, and the low unemployment rate that comes with them, mean more opportunities for South Carolinians, bigger paychecks, and more of them. We are going to continue to work tirelessly in the area of workforce development to make sure our people are willing and able to fill the jobs created by these companies investing in our state, and we will not stop fighting to lower taxes so South Carolinians can keep more of their hard-earned money."
