I agree. if the government doesn't want to take care of the people by bringing in industry and keeping jobs here, then they should be abandoned for more lucrative places. If we all did that, Michigan would be a ghost state for these politicians to campaign in, as no one would complain (being no one was there to complain, then they could pat themselves on the back and tell themselves they were doing a fine job. Let's all pack our rags and find a better place to be.

I have several friends who have left state. They have improved their lives drastically by just moving somewhere else where they can attain well paying jobs. One friend of mine only had a HS diploma and moved to Wyoming where he is now earning 75,000 a year, comapared to 10.00 and hour here.
my spouse and I have started to seriously consider leaving too.
