Kansas job growth to remain flat in 2018

The job market in Kansas is expected to remain flat during 2018, growing by a mere 0.1 percent, or less than 1,500 jobs, according to a new report from Wichita State University.

But the author of that report says that’s not necessarily bad news, especially given the 0.8 percent decline in jobs during the 12-month period that ended in July, because it’s the result of relatively full employment in the state and a tight labor market that could soon bring about higher wages.
