Ask voters their number one issue this election year, and you'll often hear "the economy and jobs." The national unemployment rate is now 5 percent, where it's been for the past year. In South Carolina, the unemployment rate hovers right around that, in part because of the state's aggressive strategy to revive its manufacturing sector and create new jobs. But part of South Carolina's appeal is its union membership, which is the lowest in the nation. NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Patricia Sabga traveled to the Palmetto State to report on the tension between job creation and job quality.
