In a time of economic crisis, when unemployment and food insecurity have increased dramatically in South Carolina, is a living wage movement more or less likely? This article does not investigate this question ethnographically, but discusses the conditions for a living wage movement in this southern U.S. state, including the right-to-work legislation and logics that frame understandings and policies regarding employment and economic well-being in the state. Interpretive and political economic anthropological perspectives are employed in this analysis.
