Horrible Kansas Jobs Report a New Punch in Gut to Gov. Sam Brownback
The long-awaited January jobs report delivered a fresh batch of bad news Friday to Gov. Sam Brownback and Kansans.
The figures provide yet more proof that the income tax cuts Brownback signed in 2012 — and which took effect three years ago in January 2013 — are not working as he promised to boost employment.
Highlights of the huge new national jobs report from the state and federal Bureau of Labor Statistics:
▪ Total nonfarm employment in the Sunflower State fell by 4,000 from December 2015 to January 2016.
