Come Back! More Hoosier Jobs Heading Out The Door To Other States

NothiringTell us again how hot your economic hot streak has been, Guv.

"A study by the Indiana Business Research Center indicates the flow of jobs from Indiana to overseas locations has shifted and is now moving to other states, particularly Michigan.

"From early 2004 to the middle of this year, the state lost 44,808 jobs to mass layoffs, said the center, which operates through the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University. A third of those jobs were moved elsewhere.

"The change comes in where the surviving jobs, the one-third of total jobs lost in mass layoffs, are moving. From 2004 through 2006, 74 percent of the jobs went to foreign locations.

"However, this year, nearly 60 percent are shifting to such states as Michigan, Arizona, Iowa and South Carolina-in that order.

"The center said it's too early to know if the 'near-shoring' is a trend or a temporary quirk."

Do voters blame Bart Peterson for this too...after all, everything that the state screws up is Bart Peterson's fault. Even after he leaves the mayor's office it will still be his fault because that's just the way it is, right? Maybe the problems in Pakistan are his fault too because Bart Peterson is the mayor of Indianapolis and he has the power to do anything. Property taxes, crime, he could stop all of that by simply snapping his fingers but he just won't do it. I have an itch on my butt, it's all Bart Peterson's fault. That's it, I've had enough!

Thanks mom, er, "Wayne." Hang in there...

I thought everything was Clinton's fault.

I blame Mitch.
