New, Disastrous Kansas Job Loss Exposes Pure Folly of Gov. Sam Brownback’s Tax Cuts
Gov. Sam Brownback’s income tax-cut plan to spur job growth in Kansas has become a full-time disaster.
On Friday, the state announced it had lost 3,000 total jobs in August. That’s on top of the 5,100 jobs lost in July.
Here’s even more dire news: The Sunflower State in the past 12 months gained a total of a puny 1,000 new jobs.
That’s the fourth worst record in the entire United States, at .1 percent employment growth for the entire last year.
Only West Virginia, North Dakota and Alaska are worse, according to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics.
