MACKINAC ISLAND (WWJ) – Gov. Rick Snyder implored Michigan’s business leaders to hire veterans and brag more about their state’s rebound in opening the Detroit Regional Chamber’s Mackinac Policy Conference Tuesday.
After receiving a standing ovation from a packed crowd of nearly 1,000 at the Grand Hotel’s theater, Snyder implored the audience to attend a session later in the conference on hiring veterans.
“Unemployment among veterans in Michigan is about 30 percent, and that’s simply unacceptable,” Snyder said.
Snyder also pointed out that some folks around the world still haven’t heard about Michigan’s comeback from a near-economic-death experience in the last recession.
