Michigan ranked No. 1 for economic stress in a test compiled by the Campaign for America’s Future (CAF). The CAF “Stress Test” assessed the condition of jobs, housing, health care and household costs on a state-by-state basis over the past eight years.

“Michigan’s number one ranking in stress reveals America’s shrinking industrial base. It has high unemployment as well as the biggest decline per capita in both manufacturing jobs and construction jobs,” a CAF report noted.

The test showed economic stress “across the board.” The CAF cited flat wages and rising costs, decreased health care coverage and decreased support for education throughout the country.
