LABOR QUALITY AND ECONOMICS DEVELOPMENT: DEVELOPMENT STRATEGIES FOR ANDERSON COUNTY, SOUTH CAROLINA, IN THE NEW GLOBAL COMPETITION

Industry came to South Carolina in the first half of this century to find cheap labor. By the 1990s, industry was coming in search of quality labor--a change whose pace accelerates as the decade of the nineties blends into the 21st century. Potential investors who raise inquiries with the Anderson County Office of Economic Development are less and less interested in the simple cost of labor and more and more interested in the productivity of labor as measured by the value of output per dollar of labor input. Economic development, at its core, is about jobs and about quality of life. Thus, these changing demands for labor are not to be taken lightly by government, business leaders and educators in Anderson County.
