Has anyone else given up trying to find a decent paying job in Michigan?

Who else does'nt buy the hype given by politicians that our future is bright so long as we "Re Train" for carreers in high tech or alternative energy? I guess six pack Joe can just change his colors overnight, get a degree in academia land and live happily ever after whilst wearing a lab coat......Laughable!! They can bring in what ever new phony jobs they want, but as long as American labor is under assault, the game never ends. I garauntee it won't be long after when these so called companies move in, that they'll ask for tax breaks and wage concessions or threaten to move out , just like all the others!!

Yes - many people in Michigan suffer from the same problem. For many of them the only solution is relocation, although many are understandably resistant to that and often truly unable to do so.
