U of M Researchers: Michigan’s economy will keep growing!
Michigan has seen the creation of more than 220,000 private sector jobs since December 2010, and a new report shows that our state’s economy is strong, and it’s going to keep on growing.
According to University of Michigan researchers, Michigan’s economy saw a great year in 2013 — and there’s more of that to come:
“Michigan is closing out 2013 with a healthy year of job growth, the second-largest gain in jobs over a year since as far back as 1999, and well in excess of the average yearly gains recorded from 1971 to 2000, prior to the extended downturn of the 2000s.”
As for the future, the researchers have a bright outlook for the Great Lakes State, writing that “We are forecasting job growth to continue at a solid pace through 2015.”
There’s more great news, too. The U of M researchers write that Michigan “trumps the nation” in both high-wage and middle-wage job growth, and our state “ranks fourth among all 51 states (including Washington, D.C.) in job growth from 2010 to 2012 in the high-wage industry category.”
More and better jobs and a brighter future for our kids. That’s what reinventing Michigan is all about!
