The unemployment rate for Kansas is at a 20-year low. That’s the good news.

The country overall has seen a remarkable economic expansion, dating back nearly a decade. Unemployment across the nation is at historic lows, and wages for workers are rising, however sluggishly. At least in Kansas, we have more job openings in certain fields than we have workers to fill them.

Unfortunately, both the nation and Kansas are less than fortified for the inevitable coming recession. That’s the bad news.
