Employment figures not good for state
Statewide unemployment fell to 7.4 percent in February 2014, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Time for celebration? No.
Economic development and job growth go hand-in-hand (well, reasonable people would agree).
Total employment fell on Haley’s watch (Jan. 2004-Jan. 2012).
It is declining but on an accelerated basis under the leadership trio of Bryant, Reeves and Gunn (Jan. 2012-Jan. 2014).
