Cost of labor

Labor can account for 50% to 60% of the total business cost, per an analysis conducted by Deloitte, making it a significant aspect of a business. U.S. labor costs increased 4% since last year.

Unemployment in the Emporia area went up again in June, with Lyon County’s rate moving above the state average.

The Kansas Department of Labor reports Lyon County’s rate was 2.7% in June. That continues an upward trend from 1.8% in April and 2.1% in May.
