Michigan’s economy has made an impressive recovery, announced Governor Whitmer after the state’s latest economic numbers were released.
The state added jobs for 11 consecutive months, keeping employment rates at historic highs.
The sustained job growth is part of a record-setting economic boom. According to Bloomberg, Michigan’s economy has “improved the most in its history since the pandemic began two years ago.” Bloomberg reports that in 2021, “no state economy performed better than Michigan’s,” putting Michigan at the forefront nationally.
Gov. Whitmer has taken several measures to help the economy rebound, including signing the Building Michigan Together plan to provide important improvements to state roads and bridges. Other measures include a tax cut for small businesses and additional funding for the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, which works to attract investment to the state.
Michigan manufacturing is also on the rise, with the automotive industry adding 20,000 jobs. “Our strong jobs numbers prove that Michiganders are getting back to work at a rapid clip,” said Whitmer.
