Governor Laura Kelly on Monday morning visited a Hy-Vee store in the state, proclaiming February 22 as Supermarket Employee Day in Kansas. The Governor was joined at the event by Kansas Representative Jesse Borjon.
“Our supermarket and grocery store employees deserve appreciation for stepping up in a big way when the pandemic hit,” Governor Kelly said. “I was pleased to sign this proclamation and express my gratitude to supermarket employees for their work.”
In Kansas, there are more than 45,000 food retail jobs that generate in excess of $3.6 billion in economic activity.
