Interesting article in USA Today about Wyoming targeting Michigan for workers. Their biggest problem: Playing down Wyoming winters:
We want to make sure we target states that make sense,’ Emmons says. ‘People think of Wyoming as having really hard winters. It really doesn’t. … But it wouldn’t make sense to recruit people from Florida.’
Michigan may be a perfect target area. It’s a state where winter lasts for five or six months. And its unemployment rate was 6.9% in October, the highest in the nation. Wyoming’s rate was 3.3%. The national average was 4.4%.
