Michigan and Texas are the two states in the top 5 that have passed right-to-work laws, and Site Selection editor-in-chief Mark Arend told MLive the legislation will “certainly keep Michigan on lists of states that are under consideration [for companies].”
Gov. Rick Snyder and Michigan Economic Development Corp. CEO Mike Finney both said the ranking highlights Michigan’s economic turnaround. The last time Michigan was ranked in the list’s top 10 was 2010, when it ranked 7th.
