— Unemployment remained unchanged in Kansas in September, holding steady at a seasonally adjusted 6.7 percent, the same as in August.

The Kansas Department of Labor report released Friday shows the economy did show signs of improvement, adding 7,800 new jobs over the past year.

Labor Secretary Karin Brownlee says the number of initial and continuing unemployment claims fell for the month. She described economic activity as heading in the right direction, though at a slow pace.

The labor force grew by 7,000 people, which an economist said indicates more people are finding jobs while others are showing enough confidence in the economy to begin looking for employment.

Still looking for those jobs sam. I should say other than the ones you are providing to your right wing nut buddies. He should be ashamed of himself.

Time frames expiring, people running out of unemployment benefits, and claims that are now being denied does not equate to stability or improvment of any kind.
