I must be living in the twilight zone. I just heard a Michigan economist on a PBS podcast saying that the auto jobs are ‘never coming back’ to the state but “we need to focus on our assets”. “For example, our beautiful shoreline. Michigan has a wonderful shoreline that is not being promoted properly.”
Auto jobs for tourism jobs. In Michigan. In Miramichi it’s pulp mill jobs for tourism jobs.
And from economists who should know better.
