Default So CNN just reported....

That the rest of the nation has started on the upswing but Michigan has gone from recession to depression. The financial guy said that Michigan is last in just about every category and getting worse while the rest of the nation starts to come back. He said "We can no longer look at Michigan as on the down side, or in trouble."

Great. I feel bad for the ones getting booted out of their jobs. Good luck to you all.

We had a panel of top-shelf economists come into work, and they're saying a meaningful MI recovery won't be until 2010 at the earliest.

They also agreed that the equivalent of an economic "cataclysmic event" will be necessary for this to occur (think "end of the UAW as we know it today").

I'm planning on my kids having to move away to get jobs.

I will certainly get flamed but shit HAD to change.

It must be broke before it can be fixed. It will be fixed but will not be how it was because to be honest how it was was not right.

I need to finish college, get out of this state, and open my own business so I can give my family who has been fucked over by the furniture and auto business a good job that actually pays money and might be stable. God bless granholn that dumb slut.

Got out of state 3 months ago, couldnt be happier. Yeah, it sucks leaving family and friends, but they wont pay your bills when youre broke. The Gen Xers need to worry about the future as we will have radical differences in our retirements compared to current retirees.

I'll be next. She's going to destroy the public education system and then programs like mine won't be around in Michigan. Cuz you know, having 2 years of a foreign language is more important than getting a skill that you can use to pay the bills.

Well yea we have to be able to communicate with telemarketers and customer support when we need to as well as Mexican immigrants. I mean they made the long trek all the way from Mexico why should they have to learn our language.
