But what if the Midwest is losing the less educated, less successful, less connected? Cities like Cleveland and Pittsburgh are actually improving their workforces and have rising incomes. If tons of Midwesterners coming from generations of blue collar workers....with high school education...decide they'd be better off working in a bar or restaurant in Florida....not really sure how that hurts the region.

And this might be anecdotal but a recent report by United Van Lines shows the Midwest actually attracting more and more migrants...with Chicago actually leading the way. Neve believe census estimates...they are rarely correct.
