Jobs Growing Faster Than Demand

By  | 

Topeka, KS (WIBW)--A new state labor report says 5 of the top 10 fastest growing occupations in Kansas will see a 40 percent rise in demand through 2014.

The Kansas Department of Labor report says that in some fields such as health care and education there are more jobs than there are qualified applicants.

The report also notes that there will be a 30% increase in employment in the gambling and recreation industries because of a new law allowing casinos in the state.
