Michigan Unemployment Rate has hit: 8.9% and climbing.
Michigan has officially entered GREAT DEPRESSION unemployment levels... It is at 8.9% and there's no signs this will look any prettier when September's numbers come out.
So... You want to know what a "2nd Great Depression" feels like? Here in Michigan?
For a guy (myself) who has nearly been killed off by Homeless Bums who unfortunately one of them I knew from High School.... And who has seen everything there is to see in Michigan's most dangerously poor and drug infested neighborhoods and communities..
The Great Depression in Michigan is well... NOT FUN!
And I'd leave Michigan if I had a job to leave to in a State that I could enjoy being in.
But, I can't find a job outside of Michigan and I have a high paying job here in Michigan that is tough to leave.
So..... Here I sit....Being one of the few lucky ones with a high paying job surrounded by "Great Depression" Michigan.... Hating the Michigan Atmosphere with a passion and not being able to do much about it.
