No Jobs Here in Independence, Kansas
Lately jobs have been limited. Especially around small towns like Independence, Kansas. The reason for that is, the economy. There have been four major businesses in this town alone that have either 1) laid people off or 2) closed it's doors.
As a result of course, no jobs. So I imagine a lot of people have been visiting our local job service office or visiting online to do a job search. Some have even gone as far as moving away from this small town. I don't blame them, however. There is not a lot of job opportunities in this area and unfortunately, things are just going to get worse. We knew this was going to happen, however. We've known all along. It's just, people are just now starting to open their eyes and realize just how serious things are.
