Central Kansas town has more jobs than workers

KSAL StaffMarch 23, 2014

Business recruiters in the central Kansas town of McPherson say there are more jobs than people to fill them, and fixing that problem might be out of their reach.

The McPherson Sentinel  reports the worker shortage gives employees the upper hand in some cases, but in the long run having abundant options could end up hurting those who jump from job to job.

Recruitment director Kasi Morales says the city has been able to pull in workers from surrounding areas, but it would be better to attract more people to live in the community.

Another business recruiter, Nick Longhofer, says low wages and scheduling issues are factors that keep employers from filling positions. Beyond addressing those problems, he says there isn’t much employers can do.
