Rock Hill Posts Third Best Job Growth Figures


Rock Hill posted the third-best job growth numbers in South Carolina this year, as the state nearly doubled its employment growth over 2011, according to figures released Wednesday by University of South Carolina economists.

Rock Hill’s 2.6 percent job growth over 2011 came in behind only Spartanburg at 3.3 percent and Florence/Darlington at 2.8 percent.

Rock Hill’s employment growth outpaced such economic centers as Myrtle Beach (up 2.2 percent), Charleston (up 1.9 percent), Columbia (up 1.6 percent) and Greenville (up 0.1 percent).

A group of economists at USC’s annual economic outlook conference said stable growth should continue in 2013 if Congress and the president can avoid the fiscal cliff.
