USDA bringing 550 jobs to Kansas City
The U.S. Department of Agriculture plans to bring more than 500 jobs to Kansas City as it relocates both the Economic Research Service and the National Institute of Food and Agricultural Policy.
“We’re also in a big hiring phase trying to get people on board and establish that in Kansas City,” USDA Under Secretary Greg Ibach said earlier this month said earlier this month.
The average salary for the positions are $80,000 to $100,000 in what Ibach calls a beautiful office.
“It’s really exciting to be able to have the people that are analyzing the economics of agriculture be right here in the heartland of America, where agriculture is,” Ibach said.
The move to Kansas City was praised by lawmakers in both parties.
