Jobs: Much Ground to Cover
Posted by Todd Davidson on Friday, January 27, 2012

The Bureau of Labor Statistics December jobs report shows Kansas has a lot of ground to cover before private sector employment returns to its 2008 peak. Kansas began 2011 with private sector employment at 93.4% of the 2008 peak and finished 2011 at 94.4%.

Kansas still needs 63,000 jobs, roughly Butler County's population, to reach the 2008 employment high.Under the current scenario Kansas will not likely reach the 2008 peak for years to come. WSU’s Center for Economic Development and Business Research pinned Kansas private sector employment growth at just under 13,000 for 2012.

Aggressive tax reform that puts money back in the hands of hard working Kansans will help speed the recovery.
