Is this a silver lining in Michigan's employment cloud?
The University of Michigan in its annual forecast of the state's economy, according to the Detroit Free Press, says that our state lost 76,000 jobs this year with another 51,000 expected to be lost next year. And then in 2009, we are expected to gain 15,000 jobs.
The study says that during a seven year period ending in mid-2000, the state created more than 700,000 jobs. We went on to lose 400,000 jobs with 70 percent coming from manufacturing.
