The annual November forecast of the Michigan economy came from George Fulton and colleagues Joan Crary and Donald Grimes. The economists at the Ann Arbor school said the state will add 111,000 jobs during 2013 and 2014 after seeing about 165,000 job gains since the end of 2009.

"For many reasons, it's not hard to feel upbeat about the Michigan economy," said Fulton, director of the school's Research Seminar in Quantitative Economics.

Fulton notes, however, that the rebound from the recession hasn't been nearly as robust as most past episodes of recovery. He said the current recovery is a "long haul."

Does anyone know of any good part-time work? hours such as 32 to 40 hours? Every job I applied to is 65 to 80 hours per week. Examples: Pridgeon & Clay, and most all those small shops in the industrial parks. 5 twelve hour days 5am to 5:30 pm M-F and 8 hours on Saturday is unmanageable. All those study's out there on the bad health affects (heart attacks at 31 yrs old) and crumbling familys due to overtime mandates by employers. Send info to this email address for good part-time work. weast643@msn.com
