55,000 Kansas jobs go a'beggin'

Post by ToledoCat#2 » October 11th, 2019, 9:29 am

Change the topic to economics. If I heard the local TV right yesterday, Kansas has an immediate need for 55,000 more workers. The state has 55,000 job vacancies that are being advertised searching for employees.

To me, that's a sign that Kansas' economy is in pretty good shape.
++++++++++
As an aside, got notifications of from a couple of investment companies yesterday. My investment income from those 2 companies in the 3rd quarter was up just a tad over $6,000. And, my investment in precious metals was also up about 20 percent for the quarter. Thank you to whoever was responsible.

Again, the job openings to prospective workers ratio has never been like this. We’ve never had more jobs than workers before. Unfortunately for the economy, my generation is just not procreating like past generations. Therefore we need more immigration not less.

I had a similar experience recently. If this continues the Trumper will win in a landslide. Nobody wants to kill the goose that's laying the golden eggs.

I would rather have legal Mexican immigrants then dopers from Colorado. At least they want to work.

Chemmy, I have no problem with bringing in legal immigrants to fill our jobs.

Any speculation as to why so many jobs exist and no one wants to fill them? I think Trumper deserves most of the credit. Is it the slow result of Kansas tax reform a few years ago? Or, both?

It’s because the population can’t support it.

Could it be that there are still folks who would rather gather in welfare than get into the workforce?

I could point out several dozen who fit that description just in my little rural community. It would be interesting to know the demographics of the 3.5% unemployed Americans. I know it's considered full employment, but it really isn't until the # is 0.

Curious what welfare benefits the several dozen people in your rural comminutiy are receiving? Disability? SSDI

Welfare Programs in the United States
There are six major U.S. welfare programs. They are Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Medicaid, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Programs, Supplemental Security Income, Earned Income Tax Credit, and Housing Assistance.
The federal government provides the funding for these programs. The states administer the programs. Some provide additional funds.

Often Congress reduces funds for these programs. If it does it without lowering the states' responsibilities, that creates an unfunded mandate. For example, the 1998 reduction in federal food stamp administration costs added $5 million to state

Toledo - Kansas has a work requirement for food stamps and welfare, in fact, most states do
