Kansas Unemployment Rate Falls to 6.3 Percent in April

Updated : June 20th, 2019

Kansas businesses, mainly construction, added 16,000 jobs in April. Out of eleven industries, eight of them have shown growth and that has been very encouraging for all the investors. The construction sector added 6,100 jobs after a long gap. Professional and business services added 4,200 jobs, with most of them coming from administrative and support services.

As per the report from the  Kansas Department of labor, the Kansas unemployment rate reduced to 6.3 percent in April from 6.9 percent in March.

Edward DeSoignie, executive director of the Heavy Constructors Association of Greater Kansas City, said he expected the increase in jobs was seasonally related.

“We are seeing the weather improve and folks are putting workers back on projects,” DeSoignie told Kansas Liberty. “Hopefully we will continue to see some gradual increases as the economy improves, but it’s a little too early to declare that the recession is over.”

It has been observed that while the public sectors gain jobs, the private sectors have not seen any progress so far.

In April, there were 18,779 Kansans who filed for unemployment, a decline from the 20,981 claims filed in March. In April 2009, there were 30,097 initial claims filed for unemployment.

  1. received letter in mail from trenton advising i am eligible for EUC. Been trying to certify at the time allotted for my social security numbers, but keep getting notification to call the re-employment office.Be darned if I know why,, This goes back to Mar, 2020 ..Calling the re-employment office is an insult to human intelligence,,The voicemail ALWAYS says to call back next day due to high volume? There seems to be no break to this ridiculous circle. You would think the system could at least indicate a reason why we need to call this phantom re-employment center so we could work to provide what is needed..68 years of living and I cannot recall something more agonizing–like a child ignoring you in the 4th grade.. Every day every hour its the same thing now for several months. Does anyone really care about doing something about this unfair nonsense? I guess we are all to blame. Hopefully we can survivive it..
