The Huffington Post has a write-up about the ten states with the biggst underemployment problem and guess what - South Carolina is on it.

Underemployment is a big problem and as HuffPo puts it, "8.2 percent of Americans are officially struggling with unemployment. Nearly double that number can be classified under a larger umbrella group: the underemployed, a classification that includes the previously mentioned, as well as part-time workers searching for full-time work and people who aren't looking because they don't think jobs are available."

We are actually in a three way tie with Washington State and Florida at number 7 on the list with, according to them, 10% unemployment and 17% underemployment. 

Hop on over to the source to check out the full list.
