Unemployment rose higher in 3 months due to the Covid-19 pandemic than it did in 2 years of the great recession.  Rates rose from 3.8%, one of the lowest in history, to a staggering 14.4% by April of 2020.  Although rates have receded significantly in the past 6 months we are still not fully recovered.  Kansas and Missouri remain at 5.9% and 4.9% respectively indicating near half a MILLION Kansas and Missouri residence remain out of work.
