3. I think it was even more
Edited on Thu Oct-21-10 01:02 PM by blue_onyx
I believe employment peaked in mid-2000 and we've been losing jobs since that point. I've heard it more like 200,000 jobs lost during Engler's last term. People also ignore that unemployment was about 7% when Granholm took office, which is where it stayed until the second Bush recession. Unfortunately, the mess made by Engler and Bush will still take years to clean up. It sucks for Granholm because her plan to diversify our economy is great but is overshadowed by the losses in the auto industry. I think we had the right person as governor at the right time.
