Default Minimum wage in South Carolina and employment

Hello, Does anyone know what the minimum wage is in South Carolina ? I heard its very hard to find a job there also. Do you know if this is true ? My family and I are considering moving there because of the nice weather and to be close to the beach, but it seems like every person we have spoken to , including realtors says there is no jobs available. Any help is apprecaited , thanks so much

No jobs available? I guess that would depend on the area of SC you're looking at, but in the Charleston-Tri county area, there are plenty of companies looking for qualified employees. What type of job are you looking for, I'd be happy to put you in touch with some of the largest employers in the lowcountry.

I don't know Myrtle that well to be honest, but Charleston's 2 hours south if you'd rather look down here. What did the branch offices in Myrtle say when you called them?

Look in the Greenville, Columbia, or Charleston areas for the best chance of getting a job in banking. Banks are opening up like mad here in Greenville. Seems a new one opens everyday.

There are banking jobs here. There are also accounting jobs that open at the local telephone, electric, pepsi and coke companies.

The best thing to do is look online. Do a search for Horry Telephone, Horry Electric, Coastal Workforce Center, AVX, and Time Warner.

If you insist on working in a bank, check Conway National Bank. They are hiring all the time. There is also BB&T and Bank of America.

That's all in the Myrtle Beach/N. Myrtle Beach area!

Hello
If you have not already moved there. RUN do not go. They are not very progressive in many of the cities.

Minimum wage is/was $5.15, but I haven't been down that low in a while, so I'm not 100% sure. Jobs are getting increasingly difficult to find, yes. There have been a lot of layoffs in the various plants throughout the state, lots of downsizing. I guess it really depends on what kind of job field you're into though. It's only hard to find a job here if you don't already live down here (why hire someone out-of-state if there are plenty willing to work locally?).

Myrtle Beach is a tourist area; you won't find a lot of banking jobs there. Like the other poster said, try one of the three main metros in South Carolina to find a job in banking.
