Re: Go West, Young People
@jastroff- What amazed me was not that they had the biggest number of new jobs, because it is such a big state, but they also had the second highest percentage growth which is pretty amazing.

On the other side, poor New Jersey. How does a state that big have such trouble attracting tech jobs?
