2010 Michigan Turnaround Plan
Wednesday, Jun 2, 2010
By blmdev


Two generations ago, Michigan was a Top Ten state for job and economic growth. For the past generation, we have lagged the nation. We are becoming economically poorer, smaller and less competitive. In order to stop this trend, we must do what any business facing these conditions would do – adopt a “turnaround plan.”

We are proposing this Michigan Turnaround Plan to get our state back to being a Top Ten economic leader again. This plan is specific, action-able and based on facts. 

Business Leaders for Michigan companies employ over 300,000 people in Michigan, generate nearly $1 Trillion in annual revenue and serve over 130,000 students. We live here, raise our children here, have our businesses here and are part of our communities. We can’t grow our businesses and employ more people without a healthy, vibrant Michigan.

The Michigan Turnaround Plan will help Michigan rediscover the role it played a generation ago – being a leader in creating good paying jobs for its citizens and being a model for the nation.
