I didn't look into Michigan as it is, what I understand from stats etc., doing poorly economically and it's hard to find employment. I know that Pittsburgh has great medical facilities and one reason why it's at the top of my list.
Thanks again and keep them coming.
Tried to add reps but for some reason it won't allow me to. ????

Prolly you had recently repped that person; gotta rep a lot of other folks before the software will let you rep the same poster again.

In regards to Michigan, it depends on what your field is in. If you're in manufacturing or education, it's probably not a good idea. If you're in health care - you might be able to find a job.

Also, it depends on where you are in the state. Some areas - such as Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, and I also think Kalamazoo and Lansing/East Lansing - are doing better than the state average.
