Re: Michigan
Pretty amazing that "60% of college grads leave right after graduation" in Michigan. I would have never guessed that high numboer of quick deserters. Now, if I were quite a bit younger and looking for a midwest job to stay near family, I'd certainlhy strongly consider such an oppportunity to have valley like benefits but stay nearer family and friends.

Re: Michigan
danielcawrey - Makes sense. If there are now jobs there, then people have to leave. 

I wonder if that's a problem for many college towns? I have friends who live in Gainesville, Fla.; they say that many grads of the college there would love to stay, but the only jobs for them are tending bar and waiting tables.

A lot of people leave Michigan because of the lack of job opportunities. This was especially true a decade or so ago.

I can understand why things might be getting better now that there is a new generation of workers that companies in Michigan need to hire, but as someone who graduated from a university in Michigan in 2006 the opportunities just weren't very good at that time.
