South Carolina’s unemployment rate edged upward in April to 11.5 percent, one-tenth of a point above the March rate of 11.4 percent, the State Employment Security Commission reported Friday.
It’s the highest jobless rate in South Carolina since the state started keeping records in 1976.
The old mark of 11.4 percent was reached in March and in January 1983.
The state has the nation’s third-highest unemployment rate. Michigan holds the country’s highest jobless rate at 12.9 percent, followed by Oregon at 12 percent.
