Kansas City Stays Winning Tech Jobs?!?

Just a bit of Friday early evening hype as the local NPR affiliate offers a bit of City Hall cherry-picked data . . . The reality is that most of this jobs are OUTSIDE OF KCMO CITY LIMITS and benefit suburbanites leaving the urban core whilst most of the development inside the loop is pretty much a real estate ponzi scheme. You decide: Kansas City Adding Advanced Industry Jobs Faster Than Most Metros

To many childish distractions in KCMO. Companies want people to work not watch the clock so they can rush out the door after doing a half assed days work to ride the trolley to some bar.

KCMO's urban core consists of government jobs, apartment dwellers, baristas, wait staff, and millenials living on dad's credit cards.
And the old line bankers, law firms, and consulting firms, all suckling at the teats of government of one level or another.
Not a whole lot "manufactured" or otherwise created there.
Makes the Wall Street money manipulators look like inventors.

Lol at a suburban manchild who thinks he knows what KCMOs urban core consists of.

10:08pm is right.
8:54pm forgot to mention terrible schools, crime, increasing utility bills and poor services, vacant buildings, and a city government that ignore residents and local businesses to cater to "developers", tourists, and the Chamber of Commerce.
The Paris of the plains.

Pay scales in this city are a late 1990's level. Who can live off less T
than $15 an hour, pitiful.

Advanced Industry Jobs = We are going to fix the city sewer system, but need to call it something catchy to keep the EPA from catching on.
