i have a few things on the back burner that might work out... problem is that we want to make sure we have secure income right now. Start ups are a little too risky for us at this point in time.... maybe in the future though.

I don't know how many jobs will be available around that area but there are a few companies that are booming, okay a very few but they are out there. I'm trying to get into one right now but I'm not sure how well that will work. Good Luck.

No, I don't want more people moving into Michigan. More people + fewer jobs = Jenny raising taxes and handing out more f'ing welfare checks.

How is the tax structure for businesses in MI? My understanding is that it SUCKS which is part of the reason so many companies have packed up shop and moved out of the state. And by suck I mean high taxes.

Remember that whole tax issue, when the government was shut down in Michigan??? Remember the service tax???

How did they make up that money? Yes, they moved it to small business in Michigan.

Its almost to the point that it would be worth me relocating outside of Michigan to conduct business.

Thats not really fair to say. Thats equivalent to saying when you purchase gasoline, you're donating to terrorism.

You won't be too far from Grand Rapids. There is big growth in the medical industry here. Anything in that area will help you out.

Thanks for the leads folks.... we just have to be persistent and something will work out.



.... and yes, I know I work for REI. It's fun to watch them get all huffy about wheeling :tonka: I've also been able to shut some of them up by showing them some of the work we do to improve the wheeling areas around here.
It's definitely an interesting position to be in....

Why are people giving them crap for moving here? If Michigan sucks so much, then move to another state. Weifallo and Nuzzy already bought a house, so stop trying to make them think it was a bad idea. We all live here, so why try to convince others not to?

Weif, I am sure you guys will be able to find jobs. It will take some work, but it can be done. Prove all the naysayers wrong!

Seriously its not as bad as people make it out to be. I had plenty of job opportunities in michigan before I took this one out in Iowa. It all depends on how hard you look and what you're willing to sacrifice. granted pfizer had a big plant that shut down in that area over there, so you're competing with more people, but there still isn't any reason you can't find a starter job (walmart) while you look for something worthwhile.

Its just sad that people are giving you a hard time just because you're moving here.

Check out Perrigo. You might have to go through a temp service to get in. They are the largest generic drug maker in the world and one of the only companies aaround that has consistently grown over the past couple of years. If you can get in there, they are a really good company to work for.
If you want to commute to Kalamazoo, the Stryker Corp is another good company to get into. Very strong growing company. Again, you have to go through a temp service for a job there.

actually I am noticing we are more and more busy at work and that means other businesses are getting more business. not back to the way it was, but still good.

as for the state shutting down, that was the biggest smokescreen ever so 2 penny jenny could get more cash.

What are the names of some of the temp agencies out there?

I've already spent 4 hours applying to jobs today... they're obviously out there. It might be really competitive, but not impossible.

manpower is a big one, progressive personnel is another one. manpower professional is pretty good at placing you, but you have to be careful, if they like you too much they will pull you and put you on a different job.
