Unemployed? South Dakota has a job for you
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Unemployed? Or thinking about switching careers but fearful of the current job market? South Dakota wants you.
With unemployment in the state about half the national average and businesses expanding on a regular basis, the state finds itself in a unique position: too many jobs and not enough people to fill them.
So South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard is poised to sign into law a unique plan to remedy the situation by authorizing the state hire a recruitment agency to bring in 1,000 out-of-state workers to fill in-demand jobs for companies like Sioux Falls-based Raven Industries.
