(South Carolina)  The South Carolina Staffing Association today announced that South Carolina Senator Kevin Bryant was awarded with the 2015 Legislator of the Year Award at its Annual Banquet and Dinner in front of over one hundred staffing company owners and executives.

The South Carolina Staffing Association (SCSA) presented Senator Bryant this award because of his support for a free market enterprise system and his historic steadfast resolve to fight against any laws that try to limit a free market system.

Creating a $2B economic impact per year in South Carolina and representing over 1,000 staffing offices statewide, SCSA presents this award to a person who holds a South Carolina public office and who, through his or her position, supports job creation, economic development and the efforts of the staffing industry to put people back to work.

Referring to a quote from Adam Smith’s “Wealth of Nations,” which hangs in a frame in Mr. Bryant’s office, SCSA President John Byrnes had this to say about Mr. Bryant: “Senator Bryant has spent his time at the State House fighting against the impediment of free market principles that are brought forth, daily, by the hundreds of special interests that roam the hallowed halls of the State House and who desire to narrow the competition. Senator Bryant fights for free market principles – he fights for businesses.  He is a guard dog at the State House – the business community’s gatekeeper to fend off bad ideas.”

Past SCSA Legislator of the Year recipients include Senator Billy O’Dell (Greenwood), Rep. Brian White (Anderson) and Senator Thomas Alexander (Oconee).

The South Carolina Staffing Association (SCSA) is a nonprofit trade association, which represents staffing and employment agencies in the state of South Carolina. A collective voice for the staffing industry, SCSA communicates industry matters to state legislators, association members, the media and the general public. SCSA works to promote the interests of the staffing industry and its vital role in the South Carolina economy.
