Kansas Job Numbers Sag in June

A graph from the Kansas Department of Labor showing private sector jobs in Kansas.

The unemployment rate remains low in Kansas, but the state has been shedding private sector jobs in recent months.
 
Numbers from the Kansas Department of Labor show private sector jobs were climbing from January to March. But according to a new monthly report, the state began losing private sector jobs -- more than 11,000 of them from March to June. 

Manufacturing jobs fell over that period, but not nearly as much as service sector jobs. The area that sagged the most includes the support jobs for organizations, such as office administration, personnel services and cleaning. 

Overall, Kansas is maintaining a low unemployment rate, at just 3.7 percent.
