Foreign auto makers make-up for lost Detroit jobs

From this morning's Wall Street Journal is a story about the Denso Corp., an affiliate of Toyota and their decision process to locate a manufacturing plant in Osceola, Ark. 

Right in the lead of the story, it says:

"But massive job cuts by Detroit have overshadowed an important change in U.S. manufacturing.  Asian and European auto companies, looking for skilled workers tomake complex products, have created nearly enough new jobs in the U.S. to make up the difference."

My question:  Why can't Michigan get these foreign auto jobs that are going to other states?  We have the trained workers?  Is it the high costs of the UAW contracts?
