Job losses – Last November, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics showed Kansas had reached a postrecession high in total nonfarm employment with 1,384,900 jobs. But in the report ending in May, the number had fallen to 1,383,300, or a loss of 1,600 jobs. While that’s a small sum, Kansas was one of only five states in the nation to shed employment over that time. All of Kansas’ neighbors have done far better since November.
