Study finds Kansas among states struggling least to hire
TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) – A recent study has found that Kansas is one of the states that is struggling the least to hire employees.
With labor force participation at 62.3% – one of the lowest rates in history – personal finance website WalletHub.com says it released its updated data on 2022′s States Where Employers Are Struggling the Most in Hiring – and Kansas is not one of them.
In order to see where employers are seeing the most difficulties in hiring, WalletHub said it compared all 50 states and Washington, D.C., based on the rate of job openings for both the latest month and the last 12 months.
According to the report, Kansas ranked 48th overall – meaning the state’s job openings are being filled fairly quickly. Kansas saw a job opening rate of 5.2% in September and a job opening rate of 6.47% for the last 12 months.
