Kansas Shows Every State How to Spur Employment
What’s the matter with Kansas? When it comes to getting people back to work, not much.
The Sunflower State recently hit its lowest unemployment rate ever — 2.3% — and the rate has been less than 3% for over a year. Kansas also has one of the nation’s highest labor force participation rates. This success is the result of commonsense policies that are surprisingly uncommon, so other states should follow Kansas’ lead when legislative sessions convene in early 2023.
