South Carolina officials are working to get more people off unemployment and back in the workforce.
Governor Henry McMaster announced a cash incentive for the Palmetto State’s technical colleges. McMaster is allocating $8 million in federal coronavirus relief aid to a partnership between the state’s 16 tech schools and the Department of Employment and Workforce.
“Through the power of our technical colleges we have an opportunity to jump ahead ten years through education,” Governor Henry McMaster said. “We have the culture and people who are ready to take the next step forward and we just need to get them trained and ready for work.”
